Rabbit anti chondroitin sulphate proteoglycan NG2 antibody
recognizes chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan NG2 also known as chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4 (CSPG4) and melanoma chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan. It was first characterized in rat as a high-molecular-weight type 1 membrane proteoglycan (Stallcup 1981
). CSPG4 is involved in cell attachment and migration (Karram et al. 2005
). It regulates spreading of melanoma cells by recruiting and activating a signalling cascade through CDC42, ACK1 and p130cas (Eisenmann et al. 1999
). It enhances FAK and ERK activation (Yang et al. 2004
