|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_003604, 8483, 214425 (mouse), 315761 (rat)|
|Predicted||Human, Mouse, Dog|
|Calculated MW||132565 Da|
|Other Names||Cartilage intermediate layer protein 1, CILP-1, Cartilage intermediate-layer protein, Cartilage intermediate layer protein 1 C1, Cartilage intermediate layer protein 1 C2, CILP|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-CILP Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Probably plays a role in cartilage scaffolding. May act by antagonizing TGF-beta1 (TGFB1) and IGF1 functions. Has the ability to suppress IGF1-induced proliferation and sulfated proteoglycan synthesis, and inhibits ligand-induced IGF1R autophosphorylation. May inhibit TGFB1-mediated induction of cartilage matrix genes via its interaction with TGFB1. Overexpression may lead to impair chondrocyte growth and matrix repair and indirectly promote inorganic pyrophosphate (PPi) supersaturation in aging and osteoarthritis cartilage.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
|Tissue Location||Specifically expressed in cartilage. Localizes in the intermediates layer of articular cartilage but neither in the superficial nor in the deepest regions. Specifically and highly expressed in intervertebral disk tissue. Expression increases with aging in hip articular cartilage. Overexpressed in articular hyaline cartilage from patients with calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease (CPPD) Expression in intervertebral disk tissue from individuals with lumbar disk disease increases as disk degeneration progresses|

Major alterations in the composition of the cartilage extracellular matrix occur in joint disease, such as osteoarthrosis. This gene encodes the cartilage intermediate layer protein (CILP), which increases in early osteoarthrosis cartilage. The encoded protein was thought to encode a protein precursor for two different proteins; an N-terminal CILP and a C-terminal homolog of NTPPHase, however, later studies identified no nucleotide pyrophosphatase phosphodiesterase (NPP) activity. The full-length and the N-terminal domain of this protein was shown to function as an IGF-1 antagonist. An allelic variant of this gene has been associated with lumbar disc disease.
