BMP4 Recombinant Human Protein

Description

Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein 4 (BMP4)is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. BMP4 is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein family which is part of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily. The superfamily includes large families of growth and differentiation factors. Bone morphogenetic proteins were originally identified by an ability of demineralized bone extract to induce endochondral osteogenesis in vivo in an extraskeletal site. This particular family member plays an important role in the onset of endochondral bone formation in humans.

High purity—no interference from other proteins or contaminants
High biological activity—more results with less protein
Proven compatibility—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® media

High purity recombinant bioactive protein
Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein 4 is one of our more than 250 available Gibco® recombinant proteins. To help ensure Gibco® growth factors are of the highest quality, each protein is analyzed for purity along with structural homogeneity to ensure a biologically active protein.

High biological activity
In-house activity testing of Gibco® Recombinant Proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, antiviral, and protease assays. Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein 4 (BMP4)specific activity is determined by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC-5 cells.

Proven compatibility
Gibco® proteins are bioassayed with Gibco® media. Since 1962, Gibco® has been the consistent provider of high quality media, reagents, and sera for reliable cell culture.
