Detection of Human CTGF/CCN2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human CTGF/CCN2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9190) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for CTGF/CCN2 at approximately 35 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

CTGF belongs to the CCN (CYR61/CTGF/NOV) family of secreted proteins
that share a common multimodular organization. Each protein contains
IGF-binding protein domain, a von Willebrand factor type C domain, a
thrombospondin type I domain, and a cysteine knot domain. The
multimodular CTGF has the ability to bind multiple ligands and has
numerous effects on development, differentation, and disease. The
C-terminal cysteine knot motif contains the heparin and low density
lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) binding sites that contributes to the
adhesive and mitogenic properties of CTGF.
