|Alternative Name||Follistatin (FST Antibody Abstract)|
|Background||Follistatin is a single-chain gonadal protein that specifically inhibits follicle-stimulating hormone release. The single FST gene encodes two isoforms, FST317 and FST344 containing 317 and 344 amino acids respectively, resulting from alternative splicing of the precursor mRNA. There is evidence linking polycystic ovary syndrome and follistatin. Follistatin binds directly to activin and functions as an activin antagonist. It specific inhibitor of the biosynthesis and secretion of pituitary follicle stimulating hormone. There are three different isoforms, generated by alternative splicing.Synonyms: Activin-binding protein, FS, FST|
|Pathways||Negative Regulation of Hormone Secretion|

ELISA: Direct: To detect hFollistatin by direct ELISA (using 100 μL/well antibody solution) aconcentration of 0.25 - 1.0 μg/mL is required. In conjunction with compatible secondaryreagents, it allows the detection of at least 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant hFollistatin. Sandwich: To detect hFollistatin by sandwich ELISA (using 100 μL/well antibody solution) aconcentration of 0.25 - 1.0 μg/mL is required. In conjunction with Polyclonal Anti-HumanFollistatin as a capture antibody, it allows the detection of at least 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well ofrecombinant hFollistatin. Western Blot: To detect hFollistatin by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at aconcentration of 0.1 - 0.2 μg/mL. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagentsthe detection limit for recombinant hFollistatin is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing ornon-reducing conditions.
Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
