Protein Construction: A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human BMP2 (NP_001191.1) (Gln283-Arg396) was expressed. The mature form sequences of human, mouse, rat, rhesus and canine BMP2 are identical.
Formulation: Lyophilized from sterile 30% CAN, 0.1% TFA, pH 2.9.
1. Normally 5% - 8% trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
Reconstitution: A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.
BMP-2 Background Information: BMP-2 protein, like other bone morphogenetic proteins, plays an important role in the development of bone and cartilage. BMP-2 protein is involved in the hedgehog pathway, TGF beta signaling pathway, and cytokine-cytokine receptor interaction. BMP-2 and BMP-7 are osteogenic BMPs that have been demonstrated to potently induce osteoblast differentiation in a variety of cell types. BMP-2, BMP-4 and BMP-7 are known to be of major importance in bone formation and repair. In cancerous tissues BMP-2 protein may play an important role in the progression of glioma.
