General description

Monoclonal Anti-Neurocan (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma 650.24 produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells (P3X cells) and splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with embryonic rat brain proteoglycans. Neurocan is a chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan (known also as CSPG3). It accounts for 20−30% of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans in early postnatal rat brain. The mouse neurocan cDNA encodes for a 1,257-amino acid protein with a 22-amino acid signal peptide followed by an immunoglobulin-like domain and repeating motifs characteristic of the hyaluronic acid-binding region of aggregating proteoglycans. Neurocan is found in large amounts in glial scar, a primarily astrocytic structure formed after an injury in the central nervous system (CNS).
Neurocan is a proteoglycan which is expressed in the nervous tissue.


embryonic rat brain proteoglycans.


Anti-Neurocan antibody, Mouse monoclonal has been used in:
  • western blotting
  • immunofluorescence
  • enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)
  • immunocytochemistry
  • immunohistochemistry

Biochem/physiol Actions

Neurocan can inhibit the growth of axons. In presence of central nervous system injuries, it also takes part in tissue repair and neural network reconstruction.
Neurocan participates in the modulation of cell adhesion and migration. It exerts a negative effect on growing cerebellar axons.

Target description

Neurocan is a chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan (knownalso as CSPG3) thought to be involved in the modulation of cell adhesion and migration. It accounts for 20-30% of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans in early postnatal rat brain.
