The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 75,110 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 76 kDa).
1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Inhibitor of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) function, it may regulate BMP responsiveness of osteoblasts and chondrocytes.
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.
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.
