Primary Accession Q62009
Reactivity Chicken, Human, Mouse
Host Rabbit
Clonality polyclonal
Calculated MW 93 KDa
Additional Information
Gene ID 50706
Gene Name POSTN
Other Names Periostin, PN, Osteoblast-specific factor 2, OSF-2, Postn, Osf2
Target/Specificity Bacterial fusion protein equivalent to a 188-amino acid polypeptide from the C-terminal region of mouse periostin which is comprised of six small alternatively-spliced exons.
Dilution WB~~ 1:1000
Format Affinity purified
Antibody Specificity Specific for the ~93 kDa periostin doublet in mouse lung extract.Consistent with the fact that this antibody is made against an alternatively spliced region ofperiostin, this antibody recognizes only the largest two of the three forms of periostin recognizedon Western blots by the Pan periostin antibody (Cat. # 1622-PERI) and also shows a distinctivestaining pattern by immunohistochemistry (data not shown). The antibody works well forimmunohistochemistry on paraformaldehyde-fixed sections with a simple antigen-retrievalprotocol (incubate slides for 20 minutes at 90º C in 10 mM sodium citrate (pH 6.0)/ 0.1 %Tween-20).
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
PrecautionsPeriostin, C-terminal Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

Periostin is a matricellular protein, i.e. an extracellular matrix protein that interacts both with other ECM proteins and with cell-surface receptors. Like many other matricellular proteins, the function of periostin is important both in embryonic development and in the remodeling of adult tissues in response to pathological insults. Periostin was originally isolated as an osteoblast-specific marker that functions as a cell adhesion molecule for preosteoblasts and is thought to be involved in osteoblast recruitment, attachment and spreading (Kruzynska-Frejtag A. et al., 2004). Periostin has since been demonstrated to be important in heart valve development and myocardial infarction because it promotes collagen fibrogenesis, inhibits differentiation of progenitor cells into cardiomyocytes and is essential in maintaining the biomechanical properties of the adult myocardium (Norris et al., 2008).
