  • FunctionMajor connective tissue mitoattractant secreted by vascular endothelial cells. Promotes proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes. Mediates heparin- and divalent cation-dependent cell adhesion in many cell types including fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells. Enhances fibroblast growth factor-induced DNA synthesis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in bone marrow and thymic cells. Also expressed one of two Wilms tumors tested.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the CCN family.
    Contains 1 CTCK (C-terminal cystine knot-like) domain.
    Contains 1 IGFBP N-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 TSP type-1 domain.
    Contains 1 VWFC domain.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Secreted.

My previous statement was incorrect. These, ab50044 and ab61847, appear to be the same fragment, but it is not clear to me if both products have both been assayed for activity. Only the ab50044 datasheet includes a note about stimulation of HUVEC proli...
