HOST SPECIES:Mouse
SPECIES REACTIVITY: Human
IMMUNOGEN: BMP-4 antibody is produced in mice using highly pure (>98%) recombinant human BMP-4 as the immunizing antigen.
TESTED APPLICATIONS: ELISA, Neut, WB
APPLICATIONS: Neutralization:
To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of hBMP-4 (5.0 ng/mL), a concentration of 0.4-0.6 μg/mL of this antibody is required.

ELISA:

In a sandwich ELISA (assuming 100 μL/well), a concentration of 4.0-8.0 μg/mL of this antibody will detect at least 2000 pg/mL of recombinant human BMP-4 when used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents.

Western Blot:
To detect hBMP-4 by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.25-0.50 μg/mL. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant hBMP-4 is 2.0-4.0 ng/lane, under non-reducing conditions.

psi-iconProperties

psi-iconBackground and References
BACKGROUND:BMPs (bone morphogenetic proteins) belong to the TGF beta superfamily of structurally related signaling proteins. Members of this superfamily are widely represented throughout the animal kingdom and have been implicated in a variety of developmental processes. Proteins of the TGF beta superfamily are disulfide-linked dimers composed of two 12-15 kDa polypeptide chains. As implied by their name, BMPs initiate, promote and regulate bone development, growth, remodeling and repair. Smad1 translocation to the nucleus is observed after the addition of BMP4 (also designated BMP2B), suggesting that BMP4 may play a role in activation of the Smad pathway. BMP is secreted into the extracellular matrix.
