Store vial at 4° C prior to restoration. For extended storage aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
This antibody specifically reacts with a D variant sequence of human NAG-1 protein from human tissues. A BLAST analysis was used to suggest partial reactivity with NAG-1 from chimpanzee and macaque based on a 92% homology. Cross-reactivity with NAG-1 from other sources has not been determined.
Bone morphogenetic proteins (e. g., BMP5, MIM 112265) are members of the transforming growth factor-beta (see TGFB1, MIM 190180) superfamily and regulate tissue differentiation and maintenance. They are synthesized as precursor molecules that are processed at a dibasic cleavage site to release C-terminal domains containing a characteristic motif of 7 conserved cysteines in the mature protein.
