Anti Neurocan peptides Polyclonal Antibody



Neurocan is a nervous tissue-unique, secretory proteoglycan that carries predominantly chondroitin sulfate side chains. Its expression gradually decreases with the nervous tissue development. In the immature brain, neurocan exists in a full-length form with a 240 kDa-core glycoprotein, whereas it exists totally in proteolytic fragments of the NH2-terminal half (neurocan-N) with a 130 kDa-core glycopeptide and the COOH-terminal half (neurocan-C) with a 150 kDa-core glycopeptide. Neurocan is implicated in the neural network formation, and is a susceptibility factor for bipolar disorder. This proteoglycan is upregulated in the lesion site of the central nervous system, and is a major component of the glial scar. In addition, neurocan-N, not neurocan-C, is detectable in the perineuronal nets of some neurons. This antibody recognizes effectively neurocan-N as well as the full-length neurocan.
