Technical Data
Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycan (HSPG)
The principal molecular structure of basement membranes has been elucidated during the past two decades and it was shown that for example in the glomerular basement membrane (GBM) HS-PG are responsible for the selective filtration process. Removal of HS-PG will lead to proteinuria. Whereas previously perlecan was the only known basement membrane HS-PG, there is now evidence that (at least two) other basement membrane HS-PG do exist: Agrin, originally discovered as an important component of the neuromuscular junction and a novel small HS-PG, that was isolated from human aorta and kidney. This HS-PG, with a molecular weight of 80-200kD (aorta) and 30-160kD (kidney) and a core protein size of 24kD or 22kD, respectively, was localized by immunohisto-hemistry to the basement membrane. Amino acid sequence analysis of tryptic peptides indicate, that this small HS-PG is clearly distinct from perlecan and agrin.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
