  • Function
    Appears to be required for normal postnatal skeletal growth and cartilage homeostasis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Predominant expression in adult kidney and testis and fetal kidney. Weaker expression found in placenta, ovary, prostate and small intestine. Also expressed in skeletally-derived cells such as synoviocytes and articular cartilage chondrocytes.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in WISP3 are the cause of progressive pseudorheumatoid arthropathy of childhood (PPAC) [MIM:208230]. PPAC is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by stiffness and swelling of joints, motor weakness and joint contractures. Signs and symptoms of the disease develop typically between three and eight years of age. This progressive disease is a primary disorder of articular cartilage with continued cartilage loss and destructive bone changes with aging.
  • 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.

  • Anti-WISP3 antibody (ab103263) at 1 µg/ml + Human kidney tissue lysate - total protein (ab30203) at 10 µg

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 37 kDa
    Observed band size: 46 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 36 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 20 minutes

    WISP3 contains a number of potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
  • ICC/IF image of ab103263 stained MCF-7 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 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 ab103263 at 10µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) 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.
