WISP‑1/CCN4 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue. WISP‑1/CCN4 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human WISP‑1/CCN4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1627) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: WISP-1/CCN4

Human WISP-1 (Wnt-induced secreted protein-1; also CNN4) is a 40 kDa, secreted, heparin-binding glycoprotein that is a member of the CCN (or CTGF/Cyr61/Nov) cysteine-rich protein family (1‑5). It is synthesized as a 367 aa precursor that contains a series of structural homology modules. Following a 22 amino acid (aa) signal sequence, there is a 68 aa IGFBP-like domain (aa 53‑120), a 57 aa von Willebrand factor type C (VWC) module (aa 126‑182), a 40 aa TSP type I domain (aa 220‑259) and a 75 aa, C-terminal cysteine knot motif (aa 273‑347). The VWC module is associated with protein-protein interaction, the TSP domain binds sulfated glycoconjugates, and the cysteine knot mediates dimerization and receptor binding (4). It is likely that WISP-1 normally circulates as an 80 kDa homodimer (2). At least five alternative splice forms are known for WISP-1. One is 30 kDa in size, 258 aa in length, and shows a substitution of a His for aa 95‑182. This removes the VWC domain (2, 6). A second isoform is 155 aa in length and shows a frameshift at Arg 117 with a unique 38 aa C‑terminal extension. A third is 195 aa in length and shows a 31 aa substitution for the first 203 aa of the full length precursor (6). This retains the VWC and cysteine knot domains. A fourth shows a 43 aa substitution for aa 117‑367 for a total length of 163 aa. This effectively removes everything but the IGFBP-like domain (7). The last splice form contains a deletion of aa 25‑269 for a total length of 122 aa. Thus, only the signal sequence and cysteine knot motifs are retained (8). This leaves only the IGFBP-like domain (9). Full-length mature human WISP-1 is 85% aa identical to both mouse and rat WISP-1. WISP-1 is expressed by osteoblasts and may contribute to fracture healing by promoting bone cell formation (10, 11).
