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.
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 of periostin, this antibody recognizes only the largest two of the three forms of periostin recognized on Western blots by the Pan periostin antibody and also shows a distinctive staining pattern by immunohistochemistry. The antibody works well for immunohistochemistry on paraformaldehyde-fixed sections with a simple antigen-retrieval protocol (incubate slides for 20 minutes at 90 degrees C in 10 mM sodium citrate (pH 6.0)/ 0.1 % Tween-20).

Periostin is a disulfide linked 90 kDa 811 amno acid protein originally isolated as a osteoblastspecific factor that functions as a cell adhesion molecule for preosteoblasts and is thought to be involved in osteoblast recruitment, attachment and spreading. Additionally, periostin expression has previously been shown to be significantly increased by both transforming growth factor beta-1(TGFbeta1) and bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2. OSF-2 has a typical signal sequence, followed by a cysteine-rich domain, a fourfold repeated domain and a C-terminal domain. The fourfold repeated domain of OSF-2 shows homology with the insect protein fasciclin. Periostin mRNA is expressed in the developing mouse embryonic and fetal heart, and that it is localized to the endocardial cushions that ultimately divide the primitive heart tube into a four-chambered heart.
