Our Anti-Periostin pan primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is rabbit polyclonal. It detects chicken, human, mouse, and rat Periostin pan and is antigen affinity purified. It is great for use in WB, IHC.
Western blot of rat lung lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~93 kDa periostin protein triplet.

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 recently been shown to promote collagen fibrogenesis, inhibit differentiation of progenitor cells into cardiomyocytes and to be essential in maintaining the biomechanical properties of the adult myocardium (Norris et al., 2008)
Antigen Affinity Purified
Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the fasciclin domain 1 of mouse periostin.
Recommended that the undiluted antibody be aliquoted into smaller working volumes (10-30 uL/vial depending on usage) upon arrival and stored long term at -20° C or -80° C, while keeping a working aliquot stored at 4° C for short term. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. Stable for at least 1 year.
Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification using a column to which the peptide immunogen was coupled.
Specific for endogenous levels of the three periostin bands around ~93 kDa. The immunogenic peptide is present in all known splice variants of periostin and therefore this antibody recognizes all known molecular forms of periostin. The antibody also works well for immunohistochemistry on paraformaldehyde-fixed sections with a simple antigen-retrieval protocol (incubate slides for 20 minutes at 90º C in 10 mM sodium citrate (pH6.0)/ 0.1 % Tween-20).
Western blots performed on each lot.
