Endocan and endocanΔ2 translated products. A: Scheme of endocan translation products, deduced from cDNA sequences. Exon 1 is represented in grey, exon 2 in white and exon 3 in black. The first amino acid of the translated products is numbered -19, and the first of the mature translated products +1. B: Western Blot of cell lysates in non reducing conditions. Lane 1: HUVEC; lane 2: endocan-CHO-K1 cells; lanes 3 and 5: endocan-HEK 293 cells; lane 4: SV1 cells; lane 6: endocanΔ2-HEK 293 cells. Black arrow indicates the endocan translation product and white arrow the endocanΔ2 translation product. Stars indicate the multimeric forms of endocanΔ2.
