  • Product overview

    Abcam’s BMP4 Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human BMP4 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human BMP4 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and BMP4 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human BMP4 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of BMP4 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from

  • Relevance
    BMPs (bone morphogenetic proteins) belong to the TGF beta superfamily of structurally related signaling proteins. Members of this superfamily are widely represented throughout the animal kingdom and have been implicated in a variety of developmental processes. Proteins of the TGF beta superfamily are disulfide linked dimers composed of two 12-15 kDa polypeptide chains. As implied by their name, BMPs initiate, promote and regulate bone development, growth, remodeling and repair. Smad1 translocation to the nucleus is observed after the addition of BMP4 (also designated BMP2B), suggesting that BMP4 may play a role in activation of the Smad pathway. BMP is secreted into the extracellular matrix.

Thank you for contacting us. Both kits ab99982 and ab99983 use the same antibody pairs. The homology between mouse and human BMP4 is 98% and it is therefore likely that these kits will detect mouse BMP4 as well. This has not been tested in house...
