Additional sequence informationHost species human, mouse and rat based upon information collected from numerous literary sources demonstrating the complete identity of the mature BMP2 sequence among these three species.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Determined by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC-5 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 0.5-1.0 μg/ml.
% SDS-PAGE. Greater than 98% by SDS-PAGE.

Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped at 4°C. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -20°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.
Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per µg (1EU/µg).
This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionCentrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water containing BSA (50ug of BSA per 1ug of protein) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at 4°C for 1 week or -20°C for future use.

FunctionInduces cartilage and bone formation.
Tissue specificityParticularly 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.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TGF-beta family.
