Aggrecan antibody | 7D4
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, identified as a cluster 1 isoform.
