Fibrillin 1 (FBN1) is a 230-kb gene with 65 coding exons that encode a 2,871-amino-acid long proprotein called profibrillin which is proteolytically cleaved near its C-terminus by the enzyme furin convertase to give fibrillin-1, a member of the fibrillin family, and the 140-amino-acid long protein hormone asprosin. FBN1 is a large, extracellular matrix glycoprotein that serves as a structural component of 10-12nm calcium-binding microfibrils. These microfibrils provide force bearing structural support in elastic and nonelastic connective tissue throughout the body. Besides, Fibulin 2 (FBLN2) has been identified as an interactor of FBN1, thus a binding ELISA assay was conducted to detect the interaction of recombinant mouse FBN1 and recombinant mouse FBLN2. Briefly, FBN1 were diluted serially in PBS, with 0.01% BSA (pH 7.4). Duplicate samples of 100 μl were then transferred to FBLN2-coated microtiter wells and incubated for 2h at 37ºC. Wells were washed with PBST and incubated for 1h with anti-FBN1 pAb, then aspirated and washed 3 times. After incubation with HRP labelled secondary antibody, wells were aspirated and washed 3 times. With the addition of substrate solution, wells were incubated 15-25 minutes at 37ºC. Finally, add 50 μl stop solution to the wells and read at 450nm immediately. The binding activity of FBN1 and FBLN2 was in a dose dependent manner.
Lyophilized from 20 mM Tris (pH 8.0) with 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT, 0.01% SKL, 5% Trehalose, Proclin300. Reconstitute with 20 mM Tris and 150 mM NaCl (pH 8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.
For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, store at -20ºC or below. After reconstitution, keep as concentrated solution.Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

This gene encodes a member of the fibrillin family of proteins. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate two proteins including the extracellular matrix component fibrillin-1 and the protein hormone asprosin. Fibrillin-1 is an extracellular matrix glycoprotein that serves as a structural component of calcium-binding microfibrils. Asprosin, secreted by white adipose tissue, has been shown to regulate glucose homeostasis. Homozygous knockout mice for this gene exhibit impaired aortic development and early postnatal death, which was attributed to a deficiency in the fibrillin-1 protein. Mice with a hypomorphic allele of this gene exhibit impaired glucose homeostasis, likely due to a reduction in serum asprosin levels. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
