Rat anti Human cartilage oligomeric matrix protein antibody, clone MA37C94 recognizes human cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), otherwise known as thrombospondin-5 (TSP-5). COMP is a 757 amino acid matrix glycoprotein bearing four EGF-like domains, a single TSP C-terminal domain and eight TSP type-3 repeats (Uniprot P49747). Defects in the COMP gene can lead to the presence of pseudoachondroplasia or multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (Posey et al. 2014).

Rat anti Human cartilage oligomeric matrix protein, clone MA37C94 recognizes an epitope located in the central portion of the molecule and has been described as suitable for use in western blotting (Gagarina et al. 2008) and immunohistochemistry (Grigoriadis et al. 2006).
