Polyclonal Goat Affinity Purified E B IH IC
Versican (versatile proteoglycan; also known as PG-M) is a 500-600kD, secreted member of the Aggrecan/Versican proteoglycan family. It is a variably glycanated, hyaluronan-binding, chondroitin sulfate-containing molecule that likely serves an anti-adhesion function and regulates the hydration properties of pericellular matrices. Human Versican is 3396 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains an N-terminal hyaluronan-binding region (G1; aa21-346), two large, alternately spliced GAG attachment domains (GAGalpha; aa348-1335; GAGbeta aa1336-3088) and a C-terminal selectin-like region (G3; aa3089-3396). Over aa1344-1554, human Versican shares 80% and 60% aa sequence identity with canine and mouse Versican, respectively.
