Rabbit anti Human BMP-7 antibody recognizes the disulphide-linked homodimeric cysteine knot protein known as human Bone Morphogenetic Protein 7 (BMP-7) or Osteogenic protein 1 (OP-1). BMP-7 is a member of the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-B) superfamily and one of a growing number of osteogenic proteins shown to induce bone and cartilage formation, and to play an important role in developmental processes, including cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis and morphogenesis.
BMPs act through binding with a receptor complex consisting of type I and type II serine/threonine kinases, resulting ultimately in the activation of the Smad protein and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways. Several antagonist proteins, including, noggin, chordin, gremlin and follistatin, are responsible for modulating the signaling effects of BMPs, through the binding and blocking of receptor ligands, thereby preventing activation.
Studies into the properties of BMP-7 have largely focused on its role during ontogeny of the kidney, owing to its prominent expression in the renal tubules. Results from research into experimental diabetic nephropathy have indicated that BMP-7 has antifibrogenic properties and appears to act as an antagonist to TGF-Beta (3-4).

Applications of BMP-7 antibody
|Immunohistology - Paraffin 1
- 1 This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections. Sodium citrate buffer pH 6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
