MA1-06821 detects large heparan sulphate proteoglycan in human, mouse, bovine, cod, wolffish, and rat samples.
MA1-06821 has sucessfully been used in Western blotting, immunocytochemistry, immunoprecipitation, and immunohistochemistry procedures. By Western blot it detects a >400 kDa band representing large HSPG.
The MA1-06821 immunogen is a high molecular mass material derived from the Engelbreth-Holm-Swarm (EHS) tumor matrix containing laminin, entactin and HSPG.
Perlecan is a major heparan-sulfate proteoglycan (HSPG) found within all basement membranes and cell surfaces. Because of its strategic location and ability to store and protect growth factors, perlecan has been strongly implicated in the control of tumor cell growth and metastatic behavior. Perlecan possesses angiogenic and growth-promoting attributes primarily by acting as a coreceptor for basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2). Suppression of perlecan causes substantial inhibition of neoplastic growth and neovascularization. Thus, perlecan is a potent inducer of neoplasm growth and angiogenesis in vivo and therapeutic interventions targeting this key modulator of tumor progression may improve neoplastic treatment.
