Gene: POSTN (periostin) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: POSTN
Name: periostin
Description: Exhibits metal ion binding activity. Involved in cell adhesion and cellular response to vitamin K. Localizes to the collagen-containing extracellular matrix and trans-Golgi network. Biomarker of abdominal aortic aneurysm; chronic kidney disease; congestive heart failure; and degenerative disc disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: MGC119510; MGC119511; OSF-2; OSF2; osteoblast specific factor 2 (fasciclin I-like); osteoblast-specific factor 2; PDLPOSTN; periodontal ligament-specific periostin; periostin isoform thy2; periostin isoform thy4; periostin isoform thy6; periostin isoform thy8; periostin, osteoblast specific factor; PN; RP11-412K4.1
