Glypican 1 (GPC1) is located at 2q37.3 on the human chromosome. It belongs to the family of glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored heparan sulfate proteoglycan. GPC1 is localized in the vascular system. GPC1 consists of an N-terminal secretory signal peptide, 14 conserved cysteine residues, a heparan sulfate (HS) attachment domain near the C terminus and a hydrophobic domain for attachment of the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) at the C terminus.
Recombinant protein encompassing a sequence within the center region of human Glypican 1.
Suggested starting dilutions are as follows: ELISA: 1:1000-1:10000, FACS: 1:50-1:200, ICC/IF: 1:100-1:1000, IHC-F: Assay-dependent dilution, IHC-P: 1:100-1:1000, IP: 1:100-1:500, WB: 1:500-1:3000. Not yet tested in other applications. Optimal working dilutions should be determined experimentally by the end user.
Glypican 1 (GPC1) plays an important role in cell growth, differentiation and morphogenesis. It also plays a role in cell migration, adhesion, anti-coagulation, lipoprotein metabolism and modulation of growth factors. GPC1 exhibits chaperone-like activity by restoring the binding activity of oxidized VEGF165 (vascular endothelial growth factors-165). Overexpression of GPC1 results in over accumulation of β-amyloid protein (Aβ) in the Alzheimer′s disease (AD) brain. Mutation in this gene is associated with Niemann-Pick C1 disease.
