Background :
This gene encodes a cysteine-rich acidic matrix-associated protein. The encoded protein is required for the collagen in bone to become calcified but is also involved in extracellular matrix synthesis and promotion of changes to cell shape. The gene product has been associated with tumor suppression but has also been correlated with metastasis based on changes to cell shape which can promote tumor cell invasion. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2015]


Usage :
Research use only

Antibodies are immunoglobulins secreted by effector lymphoid B cells into the bloodstream. Antibodies consist of two light peptide chains and two heavy peptide chains that are linked to each other by disulfide bonds to form a “Y” shaped structure. Both tips of the “Y” structure contain binding sites for a specific antigen. Antibodies are commonly used in medical research, pharmacological research, laboratory research, and health and epidemiological research. They play an important role in hot research areas such as targeted drug development, in vitro diagnostic assays, characterization of signaling pathways, detection of protein expression levels, and identification of candidate biomarkers.

DM4 Antibody (YA3387): Ravtansine (DM4) is a maytansinoid, a chemical derivative of maytansine being investigated as the cytotoxic payload of a number of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs). Microtubules are dynamic cytoskeletal polymers that switch stochastically between states of growing and shortening, called “dynamic instability”. They function in the precise segregation of chromosomes during cell division, transport of cellular cargos, and positioning and movement of intracellular organelles. Inhibition of microtubule function leads to cell cycle arrest and cell death. Microtubule-targeted drugs including the Vinca alkaloids, taxanes, and epothilones suppress the dynamic instability of microtubules, induce mitotic arrest, inhibit cell proliferation and induce apoptosis. The anticancer properties of maytansinoids have been attributed to their ability to disrupt microtubule function. The maytansinoid emtansine (DM1), for example, binds at the ends of microtubules and thereby suppress their dynamic instability. It is synthesized in order to link maytansinoids to antibodies via disulfide bonds. Maytansinoids inhibit tubulin polymerization and microtubule assembly and enhance microtubule destabilization, so there is potent suppression of microtubule dynamics resulting in a mitotic block and subsequent apoptotic cell death. DM4 can be used in the preparation of antibody drug conjugate. Although S-methyl DM1 and S-methyl DM4 inhibited microtubule assembly more weakly than maytansine, they suppressed dynamic instability more strongly than maytansine. Like vinblastine, the maytansinoids potently suppress microtubule dynamic instability by binding to a small number of high affinity sites, most likely at microtubule ends. Thus, the maytansine derivatives that result from cellular metabolism of the antibody conjugates are themselves potent microtubule poisons, interacting with microtubules as effectively as or more effectively than the parent molecule.
