Recombinant Human BMP-5

Product Details

Catalog Number: 120-39
Description:

TGF-β family members are key modulators of cell proliferation, differentiation, matrix synthesis, and apoptosis. As implied by their name, BMPs initiate, promote, and regulate the development, growth, and remodeling of bone and cartilage. In addition to this role, BMPs are also involved in prenatal development and postnatal growth, remodeling, and maintenance of a variety of other tissues and organs.  BMP-5 is expressed in the nervous system, lungs and liver.  It is a known regulator for dendritic growth in sympathetic neurons.  BMP-5 is a 454 amino acid precursor protein that is cleaved to release the biologically active C-terminal mature protein.  Recombinant Human BMP-5 is a 31.2 kDa homodimeric disulfide-linked protein consisting of two identical 138 amino acid chains.
