Detection of Human Fibromodulin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human cartilage tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Fibromodulin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5945) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Fibromodulin at approximately 55 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Fibromodulin (FMOD) is a Class II small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) superfamily member. The ~50‑70 kDa protein contains a sulfated N‑terminal complement C1q binding domain (aa 19‑98) and 12 leucine-rich repeats (aa 75‑376). A 40 kDa form is reported in dental tissues. It participates in collagen fibrillogenesis in many tissues and competes with Lumican for collagen binding. It can participate in inflammation by activating complement. In epidermal keratinocytes, it may be located in the cytoplasm. The region of human FMOD used as an immunogen shares 96% aa identity with mouse or rat FMOD.
