Description

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) constitute a subfamily within the TGF-β superfamily of structurally related signaling proteins. Members of this superfamily are widely distributed throughout the body, and are involved in diverse physiological processes during both pre- and postnatal life. Like BMP-7, BMP-4 is involved in the development and maintenance of bone and cartilage. Reduced expression of BMP-4 is associated with a number of bone diseases, including the heritable disorder Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva. PeproTech’s E.coli derived murine BMP-4 is a fully active homodimeric protein consisting of two 106 amino acid subunits which correspond to amino acids 303–408 of the full length BMP-4 precursor. The calculated molecular weight of Recombinant Murine BMP-4 is 23.9 kDa.

Biological Activity

Determined by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC-5 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 5–15 ng/ml.

Endotoxin

Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/μg of protein (<1EU/μg).

Reconstitution

Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in 10mM Citric Acid to a concentration of 0.1–1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at –20°C to –80°C.

Storage/Expiration

 –20°C
