human BMP-2 Specifications
|Background:||BMPs (bone morphogenetic proteins) belong to the TGF-b superfamily of structurally related signaling proteins. As implied by their name, BMPs promote and regulate bone development, growth, remodeling and repair, in both prenatal development and postnatal growth of eye, heart, kidney, skin, and other tissues. In addition to its osteogenic activity, BMP-2 also plays an important role in cardiac morphogenesis. BMP-2 is expressed in a variety of tissues such as lung, spleen, brain, liver, prostate ovary, and small intestine. Recombinant human BMP-2 is a 26 kDa homodimeric protein consisting of two 115 amino acid polypeptide chains
