Specifications

This gene encodes a member of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) family. BMPs belong to the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily of secreted signalling molecules that regulate diverse processes in growth, repair and embryonic development. In mouse, this gene functions as an inductive signal from the roof plate required for the specification of neuronal identity in the dorsal spinal cord.
Catalog #169479
SourceRecombinant protein corresponding to human GDF7 expressed in E. coli (Accession# BAD07014).
Molecular Weight~27kD
Endotoxin<0.1ng/ug
Biological ActivityThe protein is biologically active as determined by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ADTC5 mouse chondrogenic cells. The ED50 for this effect is 0.2-2.5ug/ml.
