FunctionMay 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 specificityCerebral 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 diseaseDefects 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.

Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of Rat cerebrum tissue sections labeling Versican with Purified ab177480 at 1:100 dilution (1.09 µg/ml). Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using ab93684 (Tris/EDTA buffer, pH 9.0). ImmunoHistoProbe one step HRP Polymer (ready to use)was used as the secondary antibody.Negative control:PBS instead of the primary antibody.Hematoxylin was used as a counterstain.

Unpurified 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.
