BMP-2 Protein, Human/Mouse/Rat (His)

Cat. No.: HY-P7006A
COA Handling Instructions

Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) is a pleiotropic ligand protein belonging to TNFβ family, and is involved in key embryonic development of vascular and valvular homeostasis. BMP-2 binds to type I receptors (ALK-2/-3/-6) and type II receptors (BMPR2, ACVR2A) to regulate various types of calcification, including atherosclerosis, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, and valve calcification. BMP-2 is overexpressed by myofibroblast and preosteoblast in the calcified area of human calcified valve, which are densely infiltrated by B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes. BMP-2 is the junction between atherosclerotic vascular calcification and normal bone formation mechanism. BMP-2 Protein, Human/Mouse/Rat (His) is 104 a.a. (Q283-R396), expressed in E. coli with a N-terminal 6*His-tag.

Description

Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) is a pleiotropic ligand protein belonging to TNFβ family, and is involved in key embryonic development of vascular and valvular homeostasis. BMP-2 binds to type I receptors (ALK-2/-3/-6) and type II receptors (BMPR2, ACVR2A) to regulate various types of calcification, including atherosclerosis, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, and valve calcification[1]. BMP-2 is overexpressed by myofibroblast and preosteoblast in the calcified area of human calcified valve, which are densely infiltrated by B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes[2]. BMP-2 is the junction between atherosclerotic vascular calcification and normal bone formation mechanism[3]. BMP-2 Protein, Human/Mouse/Rat (His) is 104 a.a. (Q283-R396), expressed in E. coli with a N-terminal 6*His-tag.

Background

Bone Morphogenetic Protein 2 (BMP-2) is a ligand protein with pleiotropic, belongs to TNFβ family. BMP-2 formats BMP/TGFβ signaling to involve in vascular and valvular homeostasis, which is a critical process of embryonic development[1].
BMP-2/TGFβ signaling can be terminated by inhibitory SMADs including SMAD6 and SMAD7, which are activated and induced by BMP signaling and switch off BMP signaling via multiple mechanisms[4].
BMP-2 is widely found in different animals, while the sequence in human is similar to Rat (91.86%), and mouse (92.13%).
BMPs exhibits critical contributions to the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis, pulmonary vascular disease, and vascular and valvular calcification[1].
BMP-2 binds different receptor, such as type I receptors (ALK-2/-3/-6) and type II receptors (BMPR2, ACVR2A), to regulate various calcification type including Atherosclerosis, Chronic Kidney Disease, Diabetes, Valvular Calcification[1].
BMP-2 promotes monocyte infiltration and inflammation of atherosclerotic legions[5].
It is linked to increased plaque formation via pro-inflammatory and pro-atherogenic effects, promoting oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction and osteogenic differentiation[6].
BMP-2 is overexpressed in ossified regions of human calcified valves by myofibroblasts and pre-osteoblasts in areas densely infiltrated with B- and T-lymphocytes[2].
And it serves as the linkers between atherosclerotic vascular calcification with mechanisms of normal bone formation[3].
BMP-2 induces angiogenesis, endothelial cells (ECs) proliferation, and migration[7].
And BMP-2 also enhances the expression of the osteoblast and chondrocyte master transcriptional regulator RUNX2 to promote the mineralization of cultured human coronary vascular SMCs in a manner that was dependent on oxidative stress and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress[8].

In Vitro

BMP-2 (10 nM; 15 min) shows little effect on the phosphorylation of MADR1, indicating MADR1 is a downstream component in the BMP2 signal transduction pathway[9].
BMP-2 (50 ng/mL; 14 d) induces osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) as well as strong synergistic effect with 1 ng/mL VEGF and 10 ng/mL bFGF, in bone marrow of femurs and tibias of 6 week-old rats[10].

Biological Activity

Measured by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cells and the ED50 for this effect is 0.1609 μg/mL, corresponding to a specific activity is 6.215×103units/mg.

Purity
  • Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE
Appearance

Lyophilized powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 50 mM Tris-HCL, 300 mM NaCl, 200 mM arginine, pH 8.0.

Endotoxin Level

<1 EU/μg, determined by LAL method.

Reconstitution

It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/mL in ddH2O. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% BSA, 5% HSA, 10% FBS or 5% Trehalose).

Storage & Stability

Stored at -20°C for 2 years. After reconstitution, it is stable at 4°C for 1 week or -20°C for longer (with carrier protein). It is recommended to freeze aliquots at -20°C or -80°C for extended storage.

Shipping

Room temperature in continental US; may vary elsewhere.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.

The reconstitution calculator equation

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration
= ÷

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

The specific activity calculator equation

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)
Unit/mg = 106 ÷ ng/mL
