Hyaluronic acid binding region (HABR), clone 1C6, monoclonal antibody is used to detect the HA-binding region of Aggrecan.



In cartilage and many other tissues the hyaluronic acid binding site is at the amino (N-) terminus of the G1 domain of the chondroitin sulphate/ keratan sulphate GAG-substituted proteoglycan monomer aggrecan. This interaction with hyaluronic acid forms large proteoglycan aggregates in cartilage and several other tissues, which creates a confined region of negative charge within the extracellular matrix of the tissue. This arrangement allows the tissue to absorb and retain large quantities of water essential for a low friction surface.
