Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/50 - 1/100.
WB 1/1000 - 1/5000. Predicted molecular weight: 373 kDa.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC/IF or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      May play a role in intercellular signaling and in connecting cells with the extracellular matrix. May take part in the regulation of cell motility, growth and differentiation. Binds hyaluronic acid.
    • Tissue specificity
      Cerebral white matter and plasma. Isoform V0 and isoform V1 are expressed in normal brain, gliomas, medulloblastomas, schwannomas, neurofibromas, and meningiomas. Isoform V2 is restricted to normal brain and gliomas. Isoform V3 is found in all these tissues except medulloblastomas.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in VCAN are the cause of Wagner syndrome type 1 (WGN1) [MIM:143200]. WGN is a dominantly inherited vitreoretinopathy characterized by an optically empty vitreous cavity with fibrillary condensations and a preretinal avascular membrane. Other optical features include progressive chorioretinal atrophy, perivascular sheating, subcapsular cataract and myopia. Systemic manifestations are absent in WGN.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the aggrecan/versican proteoglycan family.
      Contains 1 C-type lectin domain.
      Contains 2 EGF-like domains.
      Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.
      Contains 2 Link domains.
      Contains 1 Sushi (CCP/SCR) domain.
    • Developmental stage
      Disappears after the cartilage development.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Phosphorylation sites are present in the extracelllular medium.
    • Cellular localization
      Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.

    Images

    • ab177480 staining Versican in mouse cortex and hippocampus tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with Triton X and blocked with 3% BSA for 1 hour at 20°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in PBS + 2% BSA + Triton X) for 18 hours at 4°C. A HRP-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
