Additional Information

Assay Background

Periostin (OSF-2) is secreted as a 91 kDa homodimeric soluble extracellular matrix protein expressed in collagen-rich fibrous connective tissues. Periostin is involved in osteoblast recruitment, attachment and spreading. It has been associated with the epithelial-mesenchymal transition in cancer and with the differentiation of mesenchyme in the developing heart. Periostin has functions in osteology, tissue repair, oncology, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, and in various inflammatory settings. There are at least 7 isoforms of Periostin, caused by alternative splicing (http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q15063).

Assay Procedure

  1. Add 150 µl pre-diluted (1+50) STD/CTRL/SAMPLE (see chapter 5) reagents and sample preparation) into each well, swirl gently.
  2. Cover tightly and incubate for 2 hours at room temperature (18-26°C).
  3. Aspirate and wash wells 5x with 300 µl diluted WASHBUF (Wash buffer). After final wash, remove remaining WASHBUF by strongly tapping plate against paper towel.
  4. Add 150 µl AB (biotinylated anti periostin antibody, green cap) into each well, swirl gently.
  5. Cover tightly and incubate for 2 hours at room temperature (18-26°C).
  6. Aspirate and wash wells 5x with 300 µl diluted WASHBUF (Wash buffer). After final wash, remove remaining WASHBUF by strongly tapping plate against paper towel.
  7. Add 150 µl CONJ (Conjugate, amber cap) into each well, swirl gently.
  8. Cover tightly and incubate for 1 hour at room temperature (18-26°C).
  9. Aspirate and wash wells 5x with 300 µl diluted WASHBUF (Wash buffer). After final wash, remove remaining WASHBUF by strongly tapping plate against paper towel.
  10. Add 150 µl SUB (Substrate, blue cap) into each well, swirl gently.
  11. Incubate for 30 min at room temperature (18-26°C) in the dark.
  12. Add 50 µl STOP (Stop solution, white cap) into each well, swirl gently.
  13. Measure absorbance immediately at 450 nm with reference 630 nm, if available.

Expected Values

Values from apparently healthy individuals:

  • Median serum (n=24): 864 pmol/l
  • Median EDTA plasma (n=20): 817 pmol/l
  • Median heparin plasma (n=20): 891 pmol/l
  • Median citrate plasma (n=24): 885 pmol/l

It is recommended to establish the normal range for each laboratory.
