  • Function

    Major 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 specificity

    Expressed in bone marrow and thymic cells. Also expressed one of two Wilms tumors tested.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs 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.

  • Anti-CTGF antibody [17-73-F1] (ab94939) at 10 µg/ml + CTGF Recombinant Protein (Human) at 0.1 µg

    Goat Anti-Mouse IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97040) at 1/5000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 38 kDa
    Observed band size: 38 kDa

    Exposure time: 4 minutes

    The human CTGF His-tagged fusion protein, produced in E. coli, is 38.3KDa protein containing 323 amino acid residues of the human CTGF and 23 additional amino acid residues- His Tag, Xa- cleavage site.

    Predicted band size: 38 kDa
    Observed band size: 38 kDa
    Additional bands at: 44 kDa (possible glycosylated form), 50 kDa, 60 kDa, 70 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 8 minutes

    CTGF contains two glycosylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain the higher migrating band.
