Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
Purification The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name Brevican (BCAN Antibody Abstract)
Background Neural tissue expresses a variety of cell surface heparan sulfate and extracellular chondroitin sulfate containing proteoglycans. Brevican, a chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan, is a member of the lectican family. Other members of this family are aggrecan, versican, and neurocan. These proteins are either heparan sulfate or keratan sulfate containing glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchored or membrane spanning proteoglycans, or soluble chondroitin sulfate containing proteoglycans. Brevican exists as either a soluble or GPI-anchored plasma membrane protein. Brevican contains the shortest core protein of any of the family members. In addition, it is characterized by chondroitin sulfate chains, an N-terminal hyaluronic acid-binding domain (HA), an epidermal growth factor-like (EGF) repeat, and lectin-like and complement regulatory protein-like domains in its C-terminal region. Primary cerebellar astrocytes are the major site for mRNA expression and little, if any, is found in neurons. Although there is an 80 kDa N-terminal truncated form, full length brevican can be up to 145 kDa. Brevican is thought to play a role in the terminal differentiation and regulation of the adult nervous system. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
