Recombinant Human PSG-6 (Catalog # 9318-P6) induces adhesion of ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cells. The ED50 for this effect is 0.9-4.5 μg/mL.
Pregnancy-specific glycoprotein 6 (PSG-6), also known as PSG10 and PSGGB is a secreted glycoprotein of the PSG family within the CEA (carcinoembryonic antigen) superfamily (1). Mature human PSG-6 is a 401 amino acid (aa) protein that consists of four tandem immunoglobulin-like domains followed by a 30 aa C-terminal tail (2, 3). The N-terminal Ig-like domain contains an Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) sequence which is a consensus integrin-binding motif found in many adhesion proteins (4, 5). Alternative splicing generates an additional isoform with a substitution in the C-terminal tail. PSG-6 is predominantly expressed in placenta and more weakly in granulocytes (3). It induces monocyte production of the cytokines IL-6, IL-10, and TGF-beta 1 (6).
