MATN1 Antibody: Matrilins (MATNs) are a family of non-collagenous extra-cellular matrix (ECM) proteins consisting of four known members that have been proposed to play key roles in modulating cellular phenotypes during chondrogenesis of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MATN1 and MATN3 are expressed specifically in cartilage and are among the most up-regulated ECM proteins during chondrogenesis. MATN1 is composed of two Willebrand Factor A (vWFA) domains separated by one EGF-like domain, whereas MATN3 is composed of a single N-terminal vWFA domain followed by four epidermal growth factor (EGF) repeats and a coiled-coil domain. MATN1 or MATN3 may play a role in modulating chondrogenesis during the chondrocyte differentiation process. Mutations of this gene have been associated with variety of inherited chondrodysplasias. Recent studies show that the MATN1 promoter region was associated with both susceptibility and disease progression in Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.
