Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- follistatin-like 1,
- Follistatin-related protein 1,
- Follistatin-like protein 1,
FSTL1, a protein similar to follistatin, an activin-binding protein, contains an FS module, a follistatin-like sequence containing 10 conserved cysteine residues. It may modulate the action of some growth factors on cell proliferation and differentiation. There is evidence that FSTL1 binds heparin. FSTL1, overexpressed in synovial tissues from rheumatoid arthritis, is thought to be an autoantigen associated with the disease.
