Osteonectin (ON, Basement-membrane Protein 40, BM-40, Secreted Protein Acidic and Rich in Cysteine, SPARC)
Description:
SPARC (secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine)/Osteonectin is a matricellular glycoprotein that modulates cellular interactions with the ECM and is expressed in tissues undergoing remodeling. It functions as a de-adhesive protein, as a modulator of growth factor activity, and as a cell-cycle inhibitor. It induces changes in endothelial cell shape via F-actin, coincident with the appearance of intercellular gaps, that provide a paracellular pathway for extravasation of macromolecules. Tumor growth is enhanced in mice lacking SPARC due to changes in the ECM that create a more permissive environment for tumor progression.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin fixed paraffin embedded): 5ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
