 Biological Significance    Follistatin is a secreted protein that binds to ligands of the TGF beta family and regulates their activity by inhibiting their access to signaling receptors. It was originally discovered as activin antagonists whose activity suppresses expression and secretion of the pituitary hormone FSH (follicle stimulating hormone). In addition to being a natural antagonist, follistatin can inhibit the activity of other TGF beta ligands including BMP-2, -4, -6, -7, Myostatin, GDF-11, and TGF beta1. Follistatin is expressed in the pituitary, ovaries, decidual cells of the endometrium, and in some other tissues.
 Bioactivity    Determined by its ability to neutralize Activin A inhibitory effect of Mouse MPC-11 cells. The expected ED50 is 0.1-0.4 ug/ml in the presence of 7.5 ng/ml Activin A.
 Endotoxin Levels    Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per ug (1 EU/ug).
 Expression System    E Coli

 Preparation and Storage    Store at 4 degree C until reconstitution. Following reconstitution aliquot and freeze at -20 degree C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
 Other Notes    Small volumes of Fst recombinant protein vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

 NCBI Summary for Fst    The protein encoded by this gene binds to and negatively regulates activin, as well as other members of the transforming growth factor beta family, and acts to prevent uncontrolled cellular proliferation. This protein also contains a heparin-binding sequence. It is expressed in many of the tissues in which activin is synthesized and is thought to clear activin from the circulation by attachment to the cell surface. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode multiple protein isoforms, including FST315 and FST288, that differ at their C-terminus. Another isoform, FST303 is thought to be produced by proteolytic cleavage of FST315. These isoforms differ in their localization and in their ability to bind heparin. While FST315 is a circulating protein, FST288 is tissue-bound, and FST303 is gonad-specific. While deletion of all isoforms results in embryonic lethality, expression of just FST288 is sufficient for embryonic development, but the resultant mice have fertility defects.
