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.
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.
Disappears after the cartilage development.
Phosphorylation sites are present in the extracelllular medium.

Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) - Anti-Versican antibody [EPR12277] (ab177480)This image is courtesy of an Abreview submitted by Martin Broadstock
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.
