|Description||SPARC/Osteonectin is a secreted, evolutionarily conserved collagen-binding glycoprotein that is involved in a variety of cellular activities. It is highly expressed in tissues undergoing morphogenesis, remodeling and wound repair. SPARC/Osteonectin and its related peptides bind to numerous proteins of the extracellular matrix (ECM), affect ECM protein expression, influence cellular adhesion and migration, and modulate growth factor-induced cell proliferation and angiogenesis. SPARC/Osteonectin consists of three domains; an N-terminal acidic region that binds calcium ions with low affinity, a module containing two EF-hand motifs that bind calcium with high affinity, and a cysteine-rich follistatin-like domain. Recombinant human SPARC/Osteonectin is a glycoprotein containing 286 amino acids that migrates at an apparent MW of 43.7 kDa by SDS-PAGE analysis due to the effect of glycosylation.|
|BiologicalActivity||Determined by its ability to increase alkaline phosphatase activity in differentiating MC3T3 cells using a concentration of 0.5-0.7 μg/ml.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Human SPARC/Osteonectin is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
