Recombinant Human BMP-4 (HeLa derived)

Product Details

Catalog Number: 120-05
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. Recombinant Human BMP-4, expressed in HeLa cells, is a 25.6 kDa homodimeric glycoprotein.
