B2553-38A
BMP11, NT (Growth/Differentiation Factor 11, GDF-11, Bone Morphogenetic Protein 11, BMP-11, GDF11)
Description:
GDF11 is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) family and the TGF-beta superfamily. This group of proteins is characterized by a polybasic proteolytic processing site which is cleaved to produce a mature protein containing seven conserved cysteine residues. The members of this family are regulators of cell growth and differentiation in both embryonic and adult tissues. Studies in mice and Xenopus suggest that this protein is involved in mesodermal formation and neurogenesis during embryonic development.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:1,000
Western Blot: 1:50-1:100
Immunohistochemistry: 1:10-1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
