Aggrecan, A GC, AGC1
This gene is a member of the aggrecan/versican proteoglycan family. The encoded protein is an integral part of the extracellular matrix in cartilagenous tissue and it withstands compression in cartilage. Mutations in this gene may be involved in skeletal dysplasia and spinal degeneration. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms have been observed in this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Identification of new highly selective inhibitors of the human ADP/ATP carriers by molecular docking and in vitro transport assays.
Pierri et al., Bari, Italy. In Biochem Pharmacol, Dec 2015
We also demonstrated that chebulinic acid and suramin are "highly selective" AAC2 inhibitors, since they poorly inhibit other human mitochondrial carriers (namely ORC1, APC1 and AGC1).
Alendronate Prevents Intervertebral Disc Degeneration Adjacent to a Lumbar Fusion in Ovariectomized Rats.
Zhang et al., Tangshan, China. In Spine (phila Pa 1976), Nov 2015
ALN also significantly decreased Col-I, MMP-13, and ADAMTS-4 expression and increased Col-II and Aggrecan expression in the disc matrix (P < 0.05).
Role of AGC1/aralar in the metabolic synergies between neuron and glia.
Contreras, Madrid, Spain. In Neurochem Int, Sep 2015
This review will consider the cellular distribution of the mitochondrial aspartate-glutamate carrier, aralar/AGC1/SLC25A12, and its role in the synergic metabolism between neurons and astrocytes.
The regulation of neuronal mitochondrial metabolism by calcium.
Satrustegui et al., Madrid, Spain. In J Physiol, Sep 2015
The aspartate-glutamate exchanger Aralar/AGC1 (Slc25a12), a component of the malate-aspartate shuttle (MAS), is stimulated by modest increases in cytosolic Ca(2+) and upregulates respiration in cortical neurons by enhancing pyruvate supply into mitochondria.
A GC-MS Based Metabonomics Study of Rheumatoid Arthritis and the Interventional Effects of the Simiaowan in Rats.
Li et al., Tianjin, China. In Molecules, 2014
Simiaowan (SMW) is a famous Chinese prescription widely used in clinical treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
MMP proteolysis of the human extracellular matrix protein aggrecan is mainly a process of normal turnover.
Hansson et al., Lund, Sweden. In Biochem J, 2012
Data suggest that matrix metalloproteinases are mainly involved in normal aggrecan turnover in extracellular matrix and may have less-active roles in aggrecan degradation during knee injury or osteoarthritis (where aggrecanase-1 has central role).
Aggrecan: Beyond cartilage and into the brain.
Matthews et al., Leipzig, Germany. In Int J Biochem Cell Biol, 2012
In the CNS, aggrecan is expressed in a precise and tightly regulated manner both temporally and spatially. (Review)
Localization and developmental expression patterns of CSPG-cs56 (aggrecan) in normal and dystrophic retinas in two rat strains.
Yin et al., Chongqing, China. In Exp Neurol, 2012
We suggest that the role of aggrecan is to maintain retinal ganglion cell dendritic structure in the inner plexiform layer and to provide adequate support and flexibility for the photoreceptor outer segments, which is necessary to maintain their function.
Perinatal exposure to vitamin A differentially regulates chondrocyte growth and the expression of aggrecan and matrix metalloprotein genes in the femur of neonatal rats.
Ross et al., United States. In J Nutr, 2012
Data suggest that expression of aggrecan and matrix metallopeptidase 13 in femur of female neonatal rats is altered by maternal vitamin A status and neonatal diet (i.e., supplementation with vitamin A and retinoic acid).

Genetics of digital osteoarthritis.
Michou, Canada. In Joint Bone Spine, 2011
Many candidate-gene studies found associations with AGC1, ASPN, ENPP1, HFE, KL, VDR, IL-1 cluster, and IL-6, although the results were not consistently reproducible.

Pap et al., Hannover, Germany. In Nat Med, 2009
Aggrecan cleavage by a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with a thrombospondin type 1 motif, member 5 (ADAMTS-5) is crucial for the breakdown of cartilage matrix during osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that leads to the progressive destruction of articular structures.
AGC1 deficiency associated with global cerebral hypomyelination.
Wedell et al., Stockholm, Sweden. In N Engl J Med, 2009
The mitochondrial aspartate-glutamate carrier isoform 1 (AGC1), specific to neurons and muscle, supplies aspartate to the cytosol and, as a component of the malate-aspartate shuttle, enables mitochondrial oxidation of cytosolic NADH, thought to be important in providing energy for neurons in the central nervous system.
