Versican in HeLa Human Cell Line. Versican was detected in immersion fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line using 10 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human Versican Isoform V0 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3054) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Versican (versatile proteoglycan; also known as PG-M) is a 500-600 kDa, secreted member of the Aggrecan/Versican proteoglycan family. It is a variably glycanated, hyaluronan-binding, chondroitin sulfate-containing molecule that likely serves an anti-adhesion function and regulates the hydration properties of pericellular matrices. Human Versican is 3396 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains an N-terminal hyaluronan-binding region (G1; aa 21-346), two large, alternately spliced GAG attachment domains (GAG alpha ; aa 348-1335; GAG beta aa 1336-3088) and a C-terminal selectin-like region (G3; aa 3089-3396). Over aa 1344-1554, human Versican shares 80% and 60% aa sequence identity with canine and mouse Versican, respectively.
