  • Target

    • FunctionMacromolecular component of the subendothelium. Major component of the Descemet's membrane (basement membrane) of corneal endothelial cells. Also component of the endothelia of blood vessels. Necessary for migration and proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and thus, has a potential role in the maintenance of vessel wall integrity and structure, in particular in artherogenesis.
      Vastatin, the C-terminal fragment comprising the NC1 domain, inhibits aortic endothelial cell proliferation and causes cell apoptosis.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed primarily in the subendothelium of large blood vessels. Also expressed in arterioles and venules in muscle, heart, kidney, spleen, umbilical cord, liver and lung and is also found in connective tissue layers around hair follicles, around nerve bundles in muscle, in the dura of the optic nerve, in cornea and sclera, and in the perichondrium of cartilaginous tissues. In the kidney, expressed in mesangial cells, glomerular endothelial cells, and tubular epithelial cells. Also expressed in mast cells, and in astrocytes during the repair process. Expressed in Descemet's membrane. Specifically expressed in peritoneal fibroblasts and mesothelial cells.
    • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 C1q domain.
    • Post-translational
      Prolines at the third position of the tripeptide repeating unit (G-X-Y) are hydroxylated in some or all of the chains.
      Proteolytically cleaved by neutrophil elastase, in vitro. Proteolytic processing produces the C-terminal NC1 domain fragment, vastatin.

    Thank you for your inquiry.  A cross-reaction of this antibody with the collagen alpha2 (VIII) chain was not specifically tested. But I can confirm that a cross-reaction is very unlikely because the immunogen sequence only shares 66% homology with al...
