Human cartilage glycoprotein 39 (GP-39), also known as YKL-40, is a glycoprotein secreted by articular chondrocytes, synoviocytes and macrophages. Serum and synovial fluid GP-39 levels are elevated in inflammatory diseases and correlate with the degree of joint destruction in rheumatoid arthritis. GP-39 is expressed in articular chondrocytes and synovial cells, as well as in liver, but is undetectable in muscle tissues, lung, pancreas, mononuclear cells and fibroblasts. GP-39 is a candidate autoantigen in rheumatoid arthritis and is important in the capacity of cells to respond to and cope with changes in their environment.
