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-beta superfamily of structurally related signaling proteins. Members of this superfamily are widely represented throμghout the animal kingdom and have been implicated in a variety of developmental processes. Proteins of the TGF-beta superfamily are disulfide-linked dimmers composed of two 12-15 kDa polypeptide chains. As implied by their name, BMPs initiate, promote and regulate bone development, growth, remodeling and repair. BMP-7 has been indicated to induce cartilage formation.
