Negatively regulates periodontal ligament (PDL) differentiation and mineralization to ensure that the PDL is not ossified and to maintain homeostasis of the tooth-supporting system. Inhibits BMP2-induced cytodifferentiation of PDL cells by preventing its binding to BMPR1B/BMP type-1B receptor, resulting in inhibition of BMP-dependent activation of SMAD proteins (By similarity). Critical regulator of TGF-beta in articular cartilage and plays an essential role in cartilage homeostasis and osteoarthritis (OA) pathogenesis. Negatively regulates chondrogenesis in the articular cartilage by blocking the TGF-beta/receptor interaction on the cell surface and inhibiting the canonical TGF-beta/Smad signal. Binds calcium and plays a role in osteoblast-driven collagen biomineralization activity.By similarity2 Publications

Osteoarthritis 3 (OS3)
Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Susceptibility to osteoarthritis is conferred by a triplet repeat expansion polymorphism. ASPN allele having 14 aspartic acid repeats in the N-terminal region of the protein (D14), is overrepresented relative to the common allele having 13 aspartic acid repeats (D13). The frequency of the D14 allele increases with disease severity. The D14 allele is also overrepresented in individuals with hip osteoarthritis.
Disease descriptionA degenerative disease of the joints characterized by degradation of the hyaline articular cartilage and remodeling of the subchondral bone with sclerosis. Clinical symptoms include pain and joint stiffness often leading to significant disability and joint replacement.

Intervertebral disc disease (IDD)1 Publication
Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Susceptibility to intervertebral disk disease, particularly lumbar disk degeneration, is conferred by a triplet repeat expansion polymorphism. ASPN allele having 14 aspartic acid repeats in the N-terminal region of the protein (D14), is associated with the disorder in some populations (PubMed:18304494).1 Publication
Disease descriptionA common musculo-skeletal disorder caused by degeneration of intervertebral disks of the lumbar spine. It results in low-back pain and unilateral leg pain.

<p>This subsection of the ‘Entry information’ section provides a mnemonic identifier for a UniProtKB entry, but it is not a stable identifier. Each reviewed entry is assigned a unique entry name upon integration into UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot.<p><a href='/help/entry_name' target='_top'>More...</a></p>Entry nameiASPN_HUMAN
<p>This subsection of the ‘Entry information’ section provides one or more accession number(s). These are stable identifiers and should be used to cite UniProtKB entries. Upon integration into UniProtKB, each entry is assigned a unique accession number, which is called ‘Primary (citable) accession number’.<p><a href='/help/accession_numbers' target='_top'>More...</a></p>AccessioniPrimary (citable) accession number: Q9BXN1
Secondary accession number(s): Q5TBF3

<p>This subsection of the ‘Entry information’ section shows the date of integration of the entry into UniProtKB, the date of the last sequence update and the date of the last annotation modification (‘Last modified’). The version number for both the entry and the <a href="http://www.uniprot.org/help/canonical_and_isoforms">canonical sequence</a> are also displayed.<p><a href='/help/entry_history' target='_top'>More...</a></p>Entry historyiIntegrated into UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: June 20, 2002
