  • Application notes
    ELISA: Use at a concentration of 0.15 - 0.3 µg/ml. This allows the detection of at least 0.2 ng/well of recombinant human Follistatin, using 100 µl/well antibody solution.

    WB: Use at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 38 kDa. The detection limit for recombinant human Follistatin to be 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function
      Binds directly to activin and functions as an activin antagonist. Specific inhibitor of the biosynthesis and secretion of pituitary follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
    • Tissue specificity
      Isoform 1 is the predominant isoform in serum but is undetectable in follicular fluid.
    • Sequence similarities
      Contains 3 follistatin-like domains.
      Contains 3 Kazal-like domains.
      Contains 1 TB (TGF-beta binding) domain.
    • Cellular localization
      Secreted.
