Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
BMP7, BMP-7, BMP 7, bone morphogenetic protein 7, Osteogenic protein 1, OP-1
BMPs (bone morphogenetic proteins) belong to the TGF-β superfamily of structurally related signaling proteins. As implied by their name, BMPs promote and regulate bone development, growth, remodeling and repair, in both prenatal development and postnatal growth of eye, heart, kidney, skin, and other tissues. Human recombinant BMP-7 monomer is a 15.7 kDa non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 139 amino acid residues.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
E. coli expressed recombinant human BMP-7
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
30 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-human BMP-7 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml). Recombinant human BMP-7(Cat.#:4579-10) can be used as a positive control. However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
