Mouse anti-Human CTGF monoclonal antibody for ELISA
CTGF (Connective Tissue Growth Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CTGF include systemic scleroderma and renal fibrosis. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity and integrin binding. An important paralog of this gene is NOV. The protein encoded by this gene is a mitogen that is secreted by vascular endothelial cells. The encoded protein plays a role in chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation, cell adhesion in many cell types, and is related to platelet-derived growth factor. Certain polymorphisms in this gene have been linked with a higher incidence of systemic sclerosis.
Major connective tissue mitoattractant secreted by vascular endothelial cells. Promotes proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes. Mediates heparin- and divalent cation-dependent cell adhesion in many cell types including fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells. Enhances fibroblast growth factor-induced DNA synthesis. CTGF, also known as CCN2 or connective tissue growth factor, is a matricellular protein of the CCN family of extracellular matrix-associated heparin-binding proteins (see also CCN intercellular signaling protein). CTGF has important roles in many biological processes, including cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, angiogenesis, skeletal development, and tissue wound repair, and is critically involved in fibrotic disease and several forms of cancers. 0The function about CTGF antigen include fibronectin binding; growth factor activity; heparin binding; insulin-like growth factor binding.
