Related Product Information for ACAN recombinant protein

   Aggrecan is a large aggregating proteoglycan of articular cartilage. It is also found in aorta, discs and tendons (1,2). The aggrecan core protein consists of 2317aa (2). Up to 130 glucosaminoglycan chains are attached to the core protein. The total molecular mass can reach 2.2-3 x 10e3kD (4). Within the aggrecan molecule, 3 global domains G1, G2 and G3 can be distinguished. Domains G1 and G2 are connected by a rod-shaped polypeptide called interglobular domain (IGD). The sequence between domains G2 and G3 contains attachment regions for keratan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate chains. Aggrecan interacts via the G1domain with hyaluronan and link protein to form large aggregates. Such aggregates can contain up to 50-100 aggrecan monomers noncovalently bound to a single hyaluronan chain through 2 link proteins (1,2,4). The aggregates form a hydrated gel-like structurem, which endowes cartilage with resistibility to compression and deformation. Degradation of aggrecan appears to initiate at the C-terminus. The population of aggrecan molecules without the G3 domain increases with aging (5). Isolated aggrecanases cleave aggrecan at 4 sites within the chrondroitin sulfate-rich region (sites E1667-G1668, E1480-G1481, E1771-A1772, E1871-L1872) and 1 site within the interglobular domain (E373-A374) (6). Cleavage at the latter site had been documented by analysis of cartilage proteoglycan breakdown products in rheumatoid and osteoarthritis (7).

To measure aggrecanase activity, an artificial recombinant protein composed of aggrecan interglobular domain with flanking FLAG-sequence and human immunoglobulin G1 constant region was first used by Hughes et al. (8).

 Applications Tested/Suitable for ACAN recombinant protein   


 Application Notes for ACAN recombinant protein    Aggrecan interglobular domain is used as substrate for aggrecanases and matrix metalloproteinases. For proteinase activity measurements, the protein is incubated with proteinase for various time intervals. Thereafter, aliquots of the incubation mixture are analyzed by SDS-PAGE or by ELISA. Upon cleavage with aggrecanases the apparent Mr of aggrecan interlobular domain in SDS-PAGE is reduced from 21kD to ~13kD. Quantitative measurement of aggrecanase cleavage requires a neoepitope antibody with specificity for the N-terminus ARGSVILT... appearing upon hydrolysis. The fragment with the newly formed N-terminus is fixed by the neoepitope antibody to a microplate and quantified with an anti-His-tag antibody. In analogy, cleavage by matrix metalloproteinases can be measured with antibodies to neoepitopes appearing upon action of these enzymes.

 NCBI Summary for ACAN    This gene is a member of the aggrecan/versican proteoglycan family. The encoded protein is an integral part of the extracellular matrix in cartilagenous tissue and it withstands compression in cartilage. Mutations in this gene may be involved in skeletal dysplasia and spinal degeneration. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms have been observed in this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

 UniProt Comments for ACAN    ACAN: This proteoglycan is a major component of extracellular matrix of cartilagenous tissues. A major function of this protein is to resist compression in cartilage. It binds avidly to hyaluronic acid via an N-terminal globular region. Defects in ACAN are the cause of spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia type Kimberley (SEDK). Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasias are a heterogeneous group of congenital chondrodysplasias that specifically affect epiphyses and vertebrae. The autosomal dominant SEDK is associated with premature degenerative arthropathy. Defects in ACAN are the cause of spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia aggrecan type (SEMD-ACAN). A bone disease characterized by severe short stature, macrocephaly, severe midface hypoplasia, short neck, barrel chest and brachydactyly. The radiological findings comprise long bones with generalized irregular epiphyses with widened metaphyses, especially at the knees, platyspondyly, and multiple cervical-vertebral clefts. Defects in ACAN are the cause of osteochondritis dissecans short stature and early-onset osteoarthritis (OD). It is a type of osteochondritis defined as a separation of cartilage and subchondral bone from the surrounding tissue, primarily affecting the knee, ankle and elbow joints. It is clinically characterized by multiple osteochondritic lesions in knees and/or hips and/or elbows, disproportionate short stature and early-onset osteoarthritis. Belongs to the aggrecan/versican proteoglycan family. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
