24) Such novel therapeutic targets also include a family of proteases of designated ADAMTS (A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase with ThromboSpondin-like repeat), which cleave aggrecan, a large aggregating proteoglycan.
Enzymes such as the MMPs, which can degrade the major components of the extracellular matrix, and some members of the ADAMTS family, which mediates mostly cartilage aggrecan loss, remain at this time the major targets for DMOADs.
Glucosamine sulfate (50 [micro]M) induced a two-fold increase in the steady levels of perlecan and aggrecan mRNA and caused a modest but consistent decrease in the levels of stromelysine mRNA.
During the third quarter of fiscal 2005, IBEX completed the development of a next generation CS846 assay for the measurement of fetal aggrecan, a biomarker that is present in adults with early osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Fetal aggrecan is present in adults with early osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Over the next three quarters, IBEX plans to release three improved versions of its already-marketed arthritis assays, beginning in the first half of fiscal 2005 with a new CS-846 assay which measures aggrecan turn-over in arthritic joints.

SB-061 Mimics the Protective Proteoglycan, Aggrecan, to Reduce Cartilage Degradation and Pain -
Particularly, aggrecan breakdown in extracellular matrix results in joint destruction.
To specifically inactive these genes during embryonic development, growth or aging, conditional and inducible KO will be generated using Cre or Cre-ERT2 strategies and promoters for Foxa2 (notochordal cells) or aggrecan (NP cells).
To do this, they developed a new, highly sensitive type of atomic force microscopy (AFM), allowing them to measure how aggrecan reacts at the nanoscale to very high loading rates (the speeds at which forces are applied).
