  • Function
    Inhibitor of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) function, it may regulate BMP responsiveness of osteoblasts and chondrocytes.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in lung, and brain and also in primary chondrocytes.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in BMPER are the cause of diaphanospondylodysostosis (DSD) [MIM:608022]. A rare, recessively inherited, perinatal lethal skeletal disorder. The primary skeletal characteristics of the phenotype include a small chest, abnormal vertebral segmentation, and posterior rib gaps containing incompletely differentiated mesenchymal tissue. Consistent craniofacial features include ocular hypertelorism, epicanthal folds, a depressed nasal bridge with a short nose, and low-set ears. The most commonly described extraskeletal finding is nephroblastomatosis with cystic kidneys, but other visceral findings have been described in some cases.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 TIL (trypsin inhibitory-like) domain.
    Contains 5 VWFC domains.
    Contains 1 VWFD domain.

    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 76 kDa
    Observed band size : 75,110 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 37 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 20 minutesBMPER has a predicted molecular weight of 76 kDa, however it is extensively glycosylated and has been seen to run in the 100 kDa region (other commercially available antibodies).
  • ICC/IF image of ab73900 stained mouse embryonic stem cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal Goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab73900, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
