  • Product overview

    Abcam's Periostin Mouse ELISA Kit (ab193727) is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of mouse Periostin in serum, plasma (Plasma sample should be collected using EDTA or heparin as an anticoagulant. Citrate is not recommended.) and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for mouse Periostin coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and the immobilized antibody captures Periostin present in the samples. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse Periostin antibody is added. After washing away any unbound biotinylated antibody, an HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. After incubation, the wells are again washed, followed by the addition of a TMB substrate solution to the wells. Color will develop in proportion to the amount of Periostin bound in each well. Addition of the Stop Solution will change the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • Function
    Enhances incorporation of BMP1 in the fibronectin matrix of connective tissues, and subsequent proteolytic activation of lysyl oxidase LOX (By similarity). Induces cell attachment and spreading and plays a role in cell adhesion. May play a role in extracellular matrix mineralization.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed with highest levels in aorta, stomach, lower gastrointestinal tract, placenta, uterus, thyroid tissue and breast. Up-regulated in epithelial ovarian tumors. Not expressed in normal ovaries. Also highly expressed at the tumor periphery of lung carcinoma tissue but not within the tumor. Overexpressed in breast cancers.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 EMI domain.
    Contains 4 FAS1 domains.
  • Post-translational
    Gamma-carboxyglutamate residues are formed by vitamin K dependent carboxylation. These residues are essential for the binding of calcium.
  • Cellular localization
    Golgi apparatus. Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix. Colocalizes with BMP1 in the Golgi.
