Bone morphogenetic protein 3 (BMP-3), otherwise known as Osteogenin, is highly expressed in adult bone, especially chondroblasts, osteoblasts and osteoclasts, and, like other BMPs, induces bone and cartilage development. BMP-3 acts as an inhibitor of osteogenesis and bone formation, through the activation of a signalling cascade, which antagonizes pro-osteogenic BMP signalling. PHP246 corresponds to residues 361 to 472 of the 472 amino acid BMP-3 precursor protein.
Purified recombinant protein - lyophilised
Reconstitute with 500ul distilled water Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
Purified recombinant BMP-3 expressed in E.coli
Determined by its ability to inhibit BMP-2-induced alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC-5 cells.
