CRTAC1 encodes a glycosylated extracellular matrix protein that is found in the interterritorial matrix of articular deep zone cartilage. Additionally we are shipping Cartilage Acidic Protein 1 Antibodies (51) and Cartilage Acidic Protein 1 Proteins (4) and many more products for this protein.

CSF levels of LOTUS correlated inversely with disease activity in both bacterial and viral meningitis; neuroinflammation down-regulated LOTUS expression.
Confirm the increase of CRTAC1 in cartilage biopsies from OA patients undergoing joint replacement by real-time PCR and immunohistochemistry. Furthermore, we report that proinflammatory cytokines interleukin-1beta and tumor necrosis factor alpha upregulate CRTAC1 expression in primary articular chondrocytes and synovial fibroblasts.
It was shown for the first time the propensity of CRTAC1 to form amyloid-like structures, and it was hypothesized that the aggregating property of CRTAC1 may be related to its disease-association.
These results provided new insights into the mechanism of cataract development, and demonstrated that CRTAC1 could be a potentially novel target for cataract treatment.
CRTAC1 acquired an alternate last exon from the tail-to-tail oriented neighbouring gene in humans resulting in the glycosylated isoform CRTAC1-A which represents a new extracellular matrix molecule of articular cartilage.
in bone fracture patients, 12 proteins were related to bone/cartilage metabolism, including: TGF-beta induced protein IG-H(3), cartilage acidic protein 1, procollagen C proteinase enhancer protein and TGF-beta receptor III.
The neuronal overexpression of LOTUS in transgenic mice promotes motor recovery after spinal cord injury, and recombinant viral overexpression of LOTUS enhances retinal ganglion cell axonal regeneration after optic nerve crush. Thus, the level of LOTUS function titrates axonal regeneration.
Genetic deletion of Crtac1 significantly inhibited cartilage degradation, osteophyte formation and gait abnormalities of post-traumatic OA in female, but not male, animals undergoing the destabilization of medial meniscus (DMM) surgery.
These data suggest that LOTUS functions as a potent endogenous antagonist for NgR1 when bound by all four known NgR1 ligands.
These findings suggest that the UA/EC region is a functional domain of LOTUS serving for an antagonistic action to NgR1.
found CRTAC1-B(LOTUS)is key molecule for lateral olfactory tract(LOT)formation; NgR1 is LOTUS-binding protein;LOTUS suppressed Nogo-NgR1 binding and Nogo-induced growth cone collapse;suggest endogenous antagonism of NgR1 by LOTUS crucial for LOT formation
This gene encodes a glycosylated extracellular matrix protein that is found in the interterritorial matrix of articular deep zone cartilage. This protein is used as a marker to distinguish chondrocytes from osteoblasts and mesenchymal stem cells in culture. The presence of FG-GAP motifs and an RGD integrin-binding motif suggests that this protein may be involved in cell-cell or cell-matrix interactions. Copy number alterations in this gene have been observed in neurofibromatosis type 1-associated glomus tumors. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
