Description…

VCAN, or CSPG2, a large chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan, is a major component of the extracellular matrix. This secreted protein is involved in cell adhesion, proliferation, migration and angiogenesis and plays a central role in tissue morphogenesis and maintenance. It is may play a role in intercellular signaling. Mutations in the CSPG2 gene are the cause of Wagner syndrome type 1. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
