Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab51998 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Biological activity

    The ED50 as determined by dose-dependent induction of alkaline phosphatase activity with C2C12 cells is in the range of 2-12μg/ml.

  • Applications

    SDS-PAGE

  • Purity> 95 % SDS-PAGE.
    Sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is < 0.1 ng per µg of BMP4.
  • FormLyophilised
  • Additional notesThe lyophilized protein is best-stored desiccated below 0oC. Reconstituted BMP-4 should be stored in working aliquots at -20oC. For long-term storage, it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% BSA). Following reconstitution, this solution can be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at 4oC for 1 week or –20oC for future use.

  • FunctionInduces cartilage and bone formation. Also act in mesoderm induction, tooth development, limb formation and fracture repair. Acts in concert with PTHLH/PTHRP to stimulate ductal outgrowth during embryonic mammary development and to inhibit hair follicle induction.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in the lung and lower levels seen in the kidney. Present also in normal and neoplastic prostate tissues, and prostate cancer cell lines.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in BMP4 are the cause of microphthalmia syndromic type 6 (MCOPS6) [MIM:607932]; also known as microphthalmia and pituitary anomalies or microphthalmia with brain and digit developmental anomalies. Microphthalmia is a clinically heterogeneous disorder of eye formation, ranging from small size of a single eye to complete bilateral absence of ocular tissues (anophthalmia). In many cases, microphthalmia/anophthalmia occurs in association with syndromes that include non-ocular abnormalities. MCOPS6 is characterized by microphthalmia/anophthalmia associated with facial, genital, skeletal, neurologic and endocrine anomalies.
    Defects in BMP4 are the cause of non-syndromic orofacial cleft type 11 (OFC11) [MIM:600625]. Non-syndromic orofacial cleft is a common birth defect consisting of cleft lips with or without cleft palate. Cleft lips are associated with cleft palate in two-third of cases. A cleft lip can occur on one or both sides and range in severity from a simple notch in the upper lip to a complete opening in the lip extending into the floor of the nostril and involving the upper gum. OFC11 is an unusual anomaly consisting of a paramedian scar of the upper lip with an appearance suggesting that a typical cleft lip was corrected in utero.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TGF-beta family.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
