Biological Activity The protein is biologically active as determined by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ADTC5 mouse chondrogenic cells. The ED₅₀ for this effect is typically 0.2 – 2.5 µg/ml.
Reconstitution Instructions Reconstitute to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml in H₂O containing BSA (50 µg BSA per 1 µg of protein). This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers.
Handling Centrifuge the vial prior to opening.
Storage Conditions -20°C
USAGE For Research Use Only! Not to be used in humans


BMPs (bone morphogenetic proteins) belong to the TGF-β superfamily of structurally related signaling proteins. As implied by their name, BMPs promote and regulate bone development, growth, remodeling and repair, in both prenatal development and postnatal growth of eye, heart, kidney, skin, and other tissues. BMP-12 is highly conserved across species. BMP-12 regulates chondrogenesis, bone morphogenesis, and neuron differentiation. Recombinant human BMP-12 is a 27 kDa disulfide-linked homodimer containing two 122 amino acid polypeptide chains.
