CTGF (Connective Tissue Growth Factor)

Product Description:

CTGF is a member of the CCN family of secreted cysteine-rich regulatory proteins, and is the major mitogenic and chemoattractant protein produced by umbilical vein and vascular endothelial cells. CTGF stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes, induces angiogenesis, promotes cell adhesion of fibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells, and binds to IGF, TGF β1 and BMP-4. CTGF is comprised of four distinct structural domains (modules), which are identified as IGF binding protein (IGFBP), von Willebrand Factor C (VWFC), thrombospondin type-I (TSP type-I), and C- terminal cysteine knot-like (CTCK) domains. Full length CTGF can be proteolytically cleaved in certain tissues to yield N-terminal truncated isoforms, which, depending on the isoform, contain only the TSP type-I and CTCK domains or contain only the CTCK domain.
