Periostin protein shares structural and sequence homology with fasciclin I, which is an insect adhesion molecule. Periostin has a typical signal peptide at the N-terminal end suggesting it is a secreted protein. Recently, we developed a novel sandwich chemiluminescence assay to determine serum concentrations of periostin. We investigated the serum periostin level in thymoma patients, and attempted to determine the correlation between serum periostin level and clinicopathological factors of… CONTINUE READING
