Widely expressed with highest levels in aorta, stomach, lower gastrointestinal tract, placenta, uterus, thyroid tissue and breast. Up-regulated in epithelial ovarian tumors. Not expressed in normal ovaries. Also highly expressed at the tumor periphery of lung carcinoma tissue but not within the tumor. Overexpressed in breast cancers.
Gamma-carboxylation is controversial. Gamma-carboxyglutamated; gamma-carboxyglutamate residues are formed by vitamin K dependent carboxylation; this may be required for calcium binding. According to a more recent report, does not contain vitamin K-dependent gamma-carboxyglutamate residues.
Periostin (PN), also designated osteoblast-specific factor 2 (OSF-2), is a disulfide linked protein originally isolated as a osteoblast-specific factor. Periostin is a secreted protein that binds heparin and functions as a ligand for alpha(V)beta and alpha(V)beta integrins. In preosteoblasts, Periostin acts as a cell adhesion molecule and plays a role in osteoblast recruitment, spreading and attachment. Periostin is mainly detected in lower gastrointestinal tract, aorta, stomach, placenta, uterus and breast tissues but is up-regulated in epithelial ovarian tumors and overexpressed in breast cancer. Expression of Periostin is increased by bone morphogenetic protein (BMP2) and transforming growth factor β 1(TGF β 1). Periostin contains a typical signal sequence, followed by a cysteine-rich domain, a fourfold repeated domain, which shows homology with the insect protein fasciclin, and a C-terminal domain.
