CHI3L1 antibody | C02-4H12
CHI3L1 is produced by smooth muscle cells, macrophages, neutrophils, chondrocytes and osteosarcoma cels. While the general mode of action remains to determined, CHI3L1 has been implicated in angiogenesis via VEGF signalling (Riabov et al. 2014). CHI3L1 has aslo emerged as a biomarker of many chronic inflammatory conditions such as Alzheimer`s disease (Craig-Schapiro et al. 2010), rheumatoid arthritis (Lee et al. 2011) and multiple sclerosis (Comabella et al. 2010).
