Mouse BMP9 ELISA Kit is designed for the quantitative determination of BMP9 in cell culture supernatants, plasma and serum samples.
? Note: Mouse BMP9 concentration is low in normal serum/plasma, and may not be detectable in this assay.
This assay employs an antibody specific for mouse BMP9 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and BMP9 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse BMP9 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 BMP9 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.
This ELISA kit detects mouse and human BMP9. Other species not determined.

RelevanceBMP9 is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) family and the TGF-beta superfamily. They are regulators of cell growth and differentiation. BMP9 has a role in the maturation of BFCN (basal forebrain cholinergic neurons) also inducing and maintaining the ability of these cells to respond to acetylcholine; BFCN are important for the processes of learning, memory and attention. BMP9 is a potent inducer of hepcidin (a cationic peptide that has a antimicrobial properties) in hepatocytes and can regulate iron metabolism. The physiological receptor of BMP9 is thought to be activin receptor-like kinase 1, ALK1 (also called ACVRL1), an endothelial-specific type I receptor of the TGF-beta receptor family. BMP9 is one of the most potent BMPs to induce orthotopic bone formation in vivo. BMP3, a blocker of most BMPs seems not to affect BMP9.
