Background Information

Brevican is a brain-specific proteoglycan belonging to the aggrecan family that share a number of structural features. Brevican contains a hyaluronic acid-binding domain in its N-terminus and a lectin-like domain in its C-terminus. Expression of brevican is highly specific in the brain and increases as the brain develops. It may play a role in maintaining the extracellular environment of mature brain as a major constituent of the adult brain extracellular matrix (PMID:9117262). Brevican core protein exists as a 145 kDa full-length form and a 80 kDa N terminally truncated form (PMID: 8144512). This antibody can recognize the 72 kDa isoform of target.
