|Target/Specificity||This CTGF antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 134-159 amino acids from the Central region of human CTGF.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CTGF Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||CCN2, HCS24, IGFBP8|
|Function||Major connective tissue mitoattractant secreted by vascular endothelial cells. Promotes proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes. Mediates heparin- and divalent cation-dependent cell adhesion in many cell types including fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells. Enhances fibroblast growth factor-induced DNA synthesis.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix. Secreted|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in bone marrow and thymic cells. Also expressed one of two Wilms tumors tested|
