  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC/IF or IHC-P.
  • Target

    • Function

      Induces cartilage and bone formation. May be the osteoinductive factor responsible for the phenomenon of epithelial osteogenesis. Plays a role in calcium regulation and bone homeostasis.
    • Tissue specificity

      Expressed in the kidney and bladder. Lower levels seen in the brain.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the TGF-beta family.
    • Developmental stage

      Expressed in the developing eye, brain and ear during embryogenesis.
    • Post-translational

      Several N-termini starting at positions 293, 300, 315 and 316 have been identified by direct sequencing resulting in secretion of different mature forms (PubMed:17977014).

    We unfortunately do not have data that would answer your customer's question about whether the antibody has more affinity for the BMP7 precursor or mature form. What is needed is a comparison of the recovery of each protein form (precursor and mature) in the IP product and in the flow-through fraction of proteins that are not precipitated.

    The BMP7 antibody ab129156 is raised against an amino acid sequence that is present in the precursor as well as the mature protein. For western blotting, the antibody should be able to detect both forms with equal affinity, if the samples are denatured and reduced. If experimental samples contain native, non-denatured protein, the antibody may have higher affinity for one or the other, depending on their native conformation, which will determine how available the amino acid sequence is for antibody recognition. We do not have data demonstrating this, though.

    We are not aware of any references that have used this antibody for IP of cartilage, or for any assay of BMP7 in cartilage or chondrocytes.
