Technical Data
MCSP (Melanoma-associated Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan, Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan 4 (Melanoma Associated), Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan 4, Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan NG2, CSPG4, MCSPG, MEL-CSPG, Melanoma Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglyc
Proteoglycans (PGs) are a family of proteins composed of different polypeptide chains containing glycosaminoglycan (GAG) modifications. They vary in their cellular locations and have diverse structure and functions. MCSP is a proteoglycan found in the nervous system, comprising a large integral membrane PG with a core protein of 300kD and at least one covalently attached chondroitin sulfate (CS) GAG chain. In the CNS this protein is expressed mainly on the surfaces of developing and adult oligodendrocyte precursor cells, but is also associated with developing chondrocytes, cardiomyocytes, pericytes and several human tumors.
