  • Product overview

    Abcam’s BMP6 Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human BMP6 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human BMP6 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and BMP6 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human BMP6 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 BMP6 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • RelevanceBone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMP) are members of the TGF beta superfamily of cytokines that affect bone and cartilage formation. Similar to other TGF beta family proteins, BMPs are highly conserved across animal species. BMPs are involved in embryogenesis and morphogenesis of various tissues and organs. BMP6 is an autocrine stimulator of chondrocyte differentiation and has been implicated in the development of embryonic kidney and urinary systems. It is involved in liver growth and differentiation, keratinocyte differentiation, and regulation of neuronal tissue development. BMP6 expression is localized to smooth muscle cells of normal cerebral blood vessels, intimal plaques and atherosclerotically changed blood vessels, further suggesting a role as a regulator of developing tissues.
