|Other Names||Fibromodulin, FM, Collagen-binding 59 kDa protein, Keratan sulfate proteoglycan fibromodulin, KSPG fibromodulin, FMOD, FM, SLRR2E|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP9243b was selected from the C-term region of human FMOD. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Affects the rate of fibrils formation. May have a primary role in collagen fibrillogenesis (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|

Fibromodulin is a member of a family of small interstitial proteoglycans, containing a central region composed of leucine-rich repeats with 4 keratan sulfate chains flanked by disulfide-bonded terminal domains. It may participate in the assembly of the extracellular matrix as it interacts with type I and type II collagen fibrils and inhibits fibrillogenesis in vitro. It may also regulate TGF-beta activities by sequestering TGF-beta into the extracellular matrix.
