  • Function

    May play an important role in modulating bone turnover. Promotes the adhesion of osteoblast cells and inhibits the binding of fibrinogen to integrin receptors. In addition, inhibits osteocalcin production.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in primary osteoblasts, fibroblasts, ovary, testes, and heart.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the CCN family.
    Contains 1 IGFBP N-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 TSP type-1 domain.
    Contains 1 VWFC domain.

  • Anti-WISP2 antibody (ab38317) at 1/1000 dilution + A549 whole cell lysate at 35 µg/ml

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG, (H+L), Peroxidase conjugated at 1/10000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 27 kDa
    Observed band size: 27 kDa
    Additional bands at: 50 kDa, 70 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Secondary HRP-anti-rabbit was used for signal visualization with chemiluminescence.
  • ICC/IF image of ab38317 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab38317, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
