BCAN

Official Full Name
brevican
Background
This gene encodes a member of the lectican family of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans that is specifically expressed in the central nervous system. This protein is developmentally regulated and may function in the formation of the brain extracellular matrix. This protein is highly expressed in gliomas and may promote the growth and cell motility of brain tumor cells. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
Synonyms
BCAN; brevican; brevican core protein; BEHAB; brevican proteoglycan; chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 7; CSPG7; MGC13038; Brain enriched hyaluronan binding protein; Brevican core protein isoform 1; Brevican core protein isoform 2; Chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan BEHAB; brain-enriched hyaluronan-binding protein; fi32a12; wu:fi32a12
