COMP (Cartilage Oligomeric Matrix Protein Precursor, EDM1, EPD1, Epiphyseal Dysplasia 1, Epiphyseal Dysplasia 1 Multiple, MED, MGC13181, MGC149768, PSACH, Pseudoachondroplasia, THBS5, Thrombospondin 5)
Description:
COMP is a non-collagenous extracellular matrix (ECM) protein. It consists of five identical glycoprotein subunits, each with EGF like and calcium binding (thrombospondin like) domains. Oligomerization results from formation of a five stranded coiled coil and disulfides. Binding to other ECM proteins such as collagen appears to depend on divalent cations. Mutations can cause the osteochondrodysplasias pseudochondroplasia (PSACH) and multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (MED).

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
