CRTAC1 in Human Chondrocytes. CRTAC1 was detected in immersion fixed human mesenchymal stem cells differentiated into chondrocytes using Mouse Anti-Human CRTAC1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5234) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Background: CRTAC1

CRTAC1 (cartilage acidic protein 1; also CEP-68) is a 95‑105 kDa member of a novel family of EGF domain-containing proteins. It is secreted by articular chondrocytes and may play a role in either cartilage matrix organization or cell-matrix adhesion. Mature human CRTAC1 is 634 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains four FG-GAP (PheGly-GlyAlaPro) domains (aa 46‑437) and one EGF-like motif (aa 559‑605). Multiple splice forms exist. There are two alternate start sites at Met9 and Met211 that may be accompanied by a 39 aa substitution for the C-terminal 55 aa, or an 84 aa substitution for aa 545‑661. Over aa 28‑661, human CRTAC1 shares 91% aa identity with mouse CRTAC1. This form in mouse, however, is more equivalent to the human isoform that shows a C-terminal 39 aa substitution. In this case, there is 95% aa identity between mouse and human.
