General description

Aggregating chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan or aggrecan, is one of the most studied proteoglycans. Many individual monomers of aggrecan bind to hyaluronic acid to form an aggregate, the monomer is known as aggrecan. The aggregates are comprised of up to 100 monomers attached to a single chain of hyaluronic acid. The high content of negatively charged polysaccharide chains contributes to the osmotic swelling of cartilage and in combination with intact collagen fibers results in articular cartilage resistance to compressive forces and high tensile strength. Aggrecan is abundant in articular cartilage and compromises 10% of its dry weight.


AB1031 is specific for mouse aggrecan; other species have not been tested.
Expected to cross react with Human and rat.


GST fusion protein containing amino acids 1177-1326 of mouse aggrecan.


Anti-Aggrecan Antibody is an antibody against Aggrecan for use in IF, IH(P), IP & WB.
