BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY: Determined by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC-5 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 2.0-3.0 µg/ml.
psi-iconProperties
PURITY:≥ 95% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
PHYSICAL STATE:Lyophilized
STORAGE CONDITIONS:The recombinant protein is stable for at least 2 years from date of receipt at -20˚C. Reconstituted protein is stable for at least 3 months when stored in working aliquots with a carrier protein at -20˚C. As with any protein, exposing the recombinant protein to repeated freeze / thaw cycles is not recommended. When working with proteins care should be taken to keep recombinant protein at a cool and stable temperature.

OFFICIAL SYMBOL:GDF6
GENE ID:392255
psi-iconBackground and References
BACKGROUND:BMP-13 is expressed in hypertrophic chondrocytes during embryonic development of long bones. Continued postnatal expression of BMP-13 in articular cartilage suggests that it plays a regulatory role in the growth and maintenance of articular cartilage. Adenovirus-mediated BMP-13 gene transfer to rabbit bone marrow stem cells have been reported to augment periosteal repair of osteochondral defects. The functional form of BMP-13/CDMP-2 is a disulfide-linked homodimer of two 120 amino-acid polypeptide chains. This 27.5 kDa protein is obtained by proteolytic processing of a biologically inactive precursor protein of 97.7kDa. Recombinant Human BMP-13/CDMP-2 is a 27.0 kDa homodimeric disulfide-linked protein consisting of two 120 amino acid polypeptide chains.
