Description of Human SPARC/Osteonectin
Recombinant Human SPARC (Secreted Protein Acidic & Rich in Cysteine) / Osteonectin produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated protein with 286 amino acids and a molecular mass of 32.7kDa. It is also known as osteonectin or BM-40. SPARC/Osteonectin is the founding member of a family of secreted matricellular proteins with similar domain structure. The 303 amino acid, 43 kDa protein contains a 17 aa signal sequence, an N-terminal acidic region that binds calcium, a follistatin domain containing Kazal-like sequences, and a C-terminal extracellular calcium (EC) binding domain with two EF-hand motifs. SPARC/Osteonectin is produced by fibroblasts, capillary endothelial cells, platelets and macrophages, especially in areas of tissue morphogenesis and remodeling. It shows context-specific effects, but generally inhibits adhesion, spreading and proliferation, and promotes collagen matrix formation. For endothelial cells, SPARC/Osteonectin disrupts focal adhesions and binds and sequesters PDGF and VEGF. It is abundantly expressed in bone, where it promotes osteoblast differentiation and inhibits adipogenesis.
The ED50 of ≤ 3.0 µg/mL was determined by its ability to inhibit the cell growth of Mv1Lu mink lung epithelial cells, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 333 units/mg.
Lyophilized SPARC/Osteonectin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution it should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. Please avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
