MA1-20221 detects COMP in human samples.
MA1-20221 has been successfully used in ELISA, immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry (frozen and paraffin) and Western blot applications. Predicted molecular weight 82.8 kDa.
The MA1-20221 immunogen is human cartilage derived COMP.
COMP is a noncollagenous extracellular matrix (ECM) protein. It consists of five identical glycoprotein subunits, each with EGF like and calcium binding (thrombospondin like) domains. Oligomerization results from formation of a five stranded coiled coil and disulfides. Binding to other ECM proteins such as collagen appears to depend on divalent cations. Mutations can cause the osteochondrodysplasias pseudochondroplasia (PSACH) and multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (MED).
