This antibody is predicted to react with mouse and rat based on sequence homology.
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.
