||Agrin is a large proteoglycan whose best characterised role is in the development of the neuromuscular junction during embryogenesis. Agrin is named based on its involvement in the aggregation of acetylcholine receptors during synaptogenesis. In humans, this protein is encoded by the AGRIN gene. This protein has nine domains homologous to protease inhibitors. It may also have functions in other tissues and during other stages of development. It is major proteoglycan component in glomerular basement membrane and may play a role in the renal filtration and cell-matrix interactions.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Rat Agrin (C-Terminal) is Mr 90 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS Page is Mr 100 kDa.
