Source: Human cells derived

Structure: Glycosylated homodimer

Purity: >95% by SDS-PAGE

Endotoxin Level: <0.5EU/ug

Molecular Weight: 30-38kDa

Formulation: Lyophilized from a 0.2μm filtered solution in PBS without carrier protein

 

Activity Assay

The activity was measured by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production in the ATDC-5 cell line (Mouse chondrogenic cell line).

 

Reconstitution

Briefly  centrifuge  the  vial  before  opening.  It  is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile 4 mM  HCl  containing  at  least  0.1%  human  or bovine serum albumin.

 

Stability & Storage

Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. In general: 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -80°C as supplied. 1 month, 2 to 8°C under sterile conditions after reconstitution. 3 months, -20 to -80°C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

 

Protein Description

Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) is a member of transforming growth factor β family that includes more than 20 structurally related bone growth factors. BMP-2 is expressed abundant in lung, spleen and colon and in low but significant levels in heart, brain, placenta, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney, pancreas, prostate, ovary and small intestine. BMP-2  plays  an  important  role in inducing bone and cartilage formation. Mature human BMP-2 is usually a homodimer consisting of two monomers of 114 amino acids. Dimerization is facilitated by a disulfide bridge formed between the monomer, which contains three intrachain disulfide bridges arranged in a cystine knot motif.
