IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • 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.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Secreted.
