Validated ELISA Kits available for the detection of FBN1, a synonym for Fibrillin 1. This gene encodes a member of the fibrillin family. The encoded protein is a large, extracellular matrix glycoprotein that serve as a structural component of 10-12 nm calcium-binding microfibrils. These microfibrils provide force bearing structural support in elastic and nonelastic connective tissue throughout the body.
Synonyms: MP340, fibrillin-1, fibrillin 15, fibrillin 1 (Marfan syndrome)
