This Aggrecan Neoepitope antibody is useful for Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry-paraffin embedded sections, and Western Blot. In WB a band is detected at ~61 kDa representing the neoepitope sequence (NITEGE) generated by aggrecanase-mediated cleavage at Glu373-Ala374 of aggrecan core proteins. Use in Immunohistochemistry-Frozen and Flow Cytometry reported in scientific literature (PMID 21482542)
The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
Aggrecan Neoepitope (ACAN) is a proteoglycan belonging to aggrecan/versican proteoglycan family and is a major component of extracellular matrix of cartilagenous tissues. ACAN proteoglycan is mainly consists of chondroitin sulfate, however, it also contains keratan sulfate chains, N/O-linked oligosaccharides. Aggrecanase mediated cleavage results in ACAN fragments release from articular cartilage into synovial fluid during different stages of human osteoarthritis. ACAN is a secreted protein found in extracellular space/extracellular matrix and is more or less restricted to cartilages where it interact with FBLN1 as well as COM for serving the role of resisting compression in cartilage. ACAN binds to hyaluronic acid via an N-terminal globular region with high avidity and its expression occurs in chondrocytes throughout the developing skeleton. ACAN defects have been linked to spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia type Kimberley (SEDK), spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia aggrecan type (SEMD-ACAN), osteochondritis dissecans short stature and early-onset osteoarthritis (OD).

FAQs for Aggrecan Neoepitope Antibody (NB100-74350). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQs).
I found the following products on your webpage: Aggrecan Neoepitope Antibody (NB100-74350), Aggrecan Neoepitope Antibody [HRP] (NB100-74350H), and Aggrecan Neoepitope Antibody [Biotin] (NB100-74350B). It is clear that both tagged antibodies are directed against the NITEGE neoepitope of aggrecan, but it is not clear for the non tagged antibody. Looking at the datasheets, those three antibodies look quite the same. Can you confirm that the non tagged antibody is also directed against the NITEGE neoepitope? The immunogen indicated in the datasheet is "A synthetic peptide corresponding to a region of human Aggrecan (within residues 350-400)"
NB100-74350 is the same antibody that is conjugated to make NB100-74350B and NB100-74350H. The immunogen for NB100-74350 is the same as NB100-74350B and NB100-74350H.
