More Information
Product Details
Synonyms BMP2; Bone Morphogenetic Protein 2
Product Type Protein
Properties
Source/Host CHO cells
Sequence

The extracellular domain of human BMP-2 (aa 289-396) is fused to the N-terminus of the Fc region of a mutant human IgG1.

Crossreactivity Human
Biological Activity

Shows the biological function of the BMP-2 moiety and exerts a prolonged circulating half-life caused by the modified Fc domain.

Purity ≥98% (SDS-PAGE)
Endotoxin Content <0.06EU/μg protein (LAL test; Lonza).
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 50µl sterile water.
Add 1X PBS to the desired protein concentration.
Formulation Lyophilized from 0.2μm-filtered solution in PBS.
Protein Negative Control

Fc (human) IgG1 Control (rec.) (non-lytic)

Other Product Data

Non-lytic: Acts as a long lasting fusion protein which only binds to the receptor. Mutations to the complement (C1q) and FcgR I binding sites of the IgGs Fc fragment render the fusion proteins incapable of antibody directed cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement directed cytotoxicity (CDC).

Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) is a member of the BMP subgroup of the TGF-β superfamily. It plays a dominant role in embryonic dorsalventral patterning, organogenesis, limb bud formation and bone formation and regeneration. BMP-2 signals through heterodimeric complexes composed of a type I receptor (Activin RI, BMP-RIA or BMP-RIB) and a type II receptor (BMP-RII or Activin RIIB). BMP-2 induces chondrocyte proliferation, endochondral bone formation, longitudinal bone growth and bone and cartilage repair. It induces ectopic bone formation or calcification by promoting osteogenic and chondrogenic differentiation in mesenchymal cells, stem cells and vascular smooth muscle cells. It also promotes the maintenance and repair of colonic epithelium, suppresses neuronal dopamine synthesis and release, induces apoptosis in medulloblastoma cells and is required for cardiac contractility.
