|Decorin in Mouse Dorsal Root Ganglia. Decorin was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse dorsal root ganglia using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Mouse Decorin Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF1060) 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).

Decorin is a small secreted chondroitin/dermatan sulfate proteoglycan belonging to the class I small leucine-rich proteoglycan family (SLRP). All SLRP family members are characterized by the N-terminal and C-terminal cysteine-rich regions, which flank the central region containing 10‑12 tandem leucine-rich repeats. In mouse Decorin, the glycosaminoglycan chain is O-linked to Ser34 in the N-terminal disulfide-bridged loop. Decorin binds to fibronectin, TGF-beta, type I and type II collagen. The binding of Decorin to these molecules is mediated via the core protein. Decorin plays a role in maintaining collagen fibrillogenesis. Depending on the cell context, Decorin can either block or augment the bioactivity of TGF-beta Decorin induces growth suppression by activation of a signaling pathway that culminates in the blockade of the cell cycle machinery. Decorin can also induce fibroblast cytoskeletal and signalling changes that results in an increased cell migration (1, 2).
