Human ESM-1 / Endocan His-Tag recombinant Protein
ENDOCAN, ESM1, endothelial cell-specific molecule 1.
Description of Human ESM-1 / Endocan His-Tag
Endocan, also known as endothelial cell-specific molecule1 (ESM1), is a secreted cysteine-rich dermatan sulfate (DS) proteoglycan primarily expressed by endothelial cells within the vascular capillary network in kidney and in the alveolar walls of the lung. Endocan expression has also been detected in different epithelia and in adipocytes. The expression of endocan is up-regulated by TNFa, IL1ß or lipopolysaccharide and down-regulated by IFN?. The human Endocan gene encodes a 184 amino acid (aa) residues precursor protein with a 19 aa hydrophobic signal peptide and a 165 aa mature region with 18 Cysteine residues. The DS chain is covalently attached to serine 137. Endocan has been shown to bind CD11a/CD18 integrin (also known as lymphocyte function-associated antigen1, LFA1) on human lymphocytes, monocytes and Jurkat cells, inhibiting its binding to ICAM1 and reducing LFA1mediated leukocyte activation. Endocan binds via its DS chain to hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) to enhance HGF mitogenic activity. Genetically engineered cells overexpressing Endocan has been shown to induce tumor formation, suggesting that Endocan may be involved in the pathophysiology of tumor growth in vivo. Circulating Endocan can be detected in the serum from healthy subjects. In patients with lung cancer or acute and severe sepsis, elevated Endocan concentrations have been reported.
Testing in Progress.
Human ESM-1/Endocan should be reconstituted in 50 mM acetic acid or water to a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml. This solution can be diluted in water or other buffer solutions or stored at -20 °C.
