Biglycan (BGN) is a small leucine-rich repeat proteoglycan (SLRP) which is found in a variety of extracellular matrix tissues, including bone, cartilage and tendon. It is an important structural component of articular cartilage and participates in the assembly of the chondrocyte extracellular matrix through formation of protein interactions with type VI collagen and large proteoglycan aggregates. In humans, Biglycan is encoded by the BGN gene. It is mapped to Xq28. Biglycan is believed to play a role in the mineralisation of bone, and its core protein binds to the growth factors BMP-4 and influences its bioactivity. It has been reported that the presence of biglycan is necessary for BMP-4 to exert its effects on osteoblasts. There is also evidence that biglycan can bind to TGF-beta 1. In addition, Biglycan plays an important role in cell signaling.

Application Note

Useful in Sandwich ELISA for Quantitative Detection of Antigen. Aliquot 0.1ml per well of the 10,000pg/ml, 5000pg/ml, 2500pg/ml, 1250pg/ml, 625pg/ml, 312pg/ml, 156pg/ml human Biglycan standard solutions into the precoated 96-well plate. Add 0.1ml of the sample diluent buffer into the control well (Zero well). Add 0.1ml of each properly diluted sample of human cell culture supernates, serum, plasma(heparin, EDTA) or tissue homogenates to each empty well. It is recommended that each human Biglycan standard solution and each sample be measured in duplicate.


Natural and recombinant human Biglycan. There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.
