In Western blots, less than 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) GDF-5, rmGDF-6, rmGDF-7, rmGDF-8, and rmGDF-9 is observed.
Reconstitute at 0.2 mg/mL in sterile PBS.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein 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.
