Biglycan in Human Kidney Array. Biglycan was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney array using Human Biglycan Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2667) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Biglycan is a small secreted proteoglycan belonging to the leucine-rich repeat (LRR) protein family. It contains a central 12 LRR repeat domain flanked by small cysteine clusters at either side. Two glycosaminoglycans (GAG) chains are attached near the amino terminus. Biglycan binds BMP-4 and Chordin to regulate BMP-4 signaling. It may also be involved in collagen fiber assembly. Human Biglycan shares 98% amino acid sequence homology with mouse Biglycan, 97% sequence homology with rat and bovine Biglycan and 96% sequence homology with canine and equine Biglycan.
