Mouse anti Human aggrecan antibody, clone 7D4 used for the detection of aggrecan in bovine synovial explants by immunohistochemistry on formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissue sections
Image caption:
nfluence of TGF-ß1 on the BMP-2-induced deposition of cartilaginous proteins in synovial explants (immunohistochemical analysis). Light micrographs of sections through bovine explants that had been cultured for 6 weeks under the indicated stimulation conditions and then either stained with Toluidine Blue (1st row), or treated for the immunohistochemical detection of aggrecan (2nd row), type-II collagen (3rd row), type-IX collagen (4th row), type-X collagen (5th row) or COMP (6th row). BMP-2 was applied at a concentration of 200 ng/ml, and TGF-β1 at one of 10 ng/ml. Each agent was introduced at the onset of the 6-week culturing period and was present throughout its course. Native (uncultured) metacarpal-joint cartilage (final vertical column) served as a positive control. Cell nuclei (2nd to 6th rows) were counterstained with haematoxylin. All photomicrographs are represented at the same final magnification. Bar?=?100 μm.

    • Mouse anti Human Aggrecan antibody, clone 7D4 recognizes human aggrecan, a proteoglycan and member of the aggrecan/versican proteoglycan family, which forms a major component of the extracellular matrix (ECM) of both cartilage and the central nervous system (CNS).

      Studies using a panel of core protein-directed antibodies against human aggrecan, revealed the distribution of different aggrecan isoforms within the CNS, and sub-divided the isoforms into clusters 1-5 accordingly. These studies also showed a difference in the relative abundance of these isoforms when comparing brain and cartilage tissues (Virgintino et al. 2009).  

      Mouse anti Human Aggrecan antibody, clone 7D4 recognizes epitopes within the N-terminal G1-IGD-G2 region of aggrecan, that has been identified as a cluster 1 isoform.
