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. Recombinant human BMP-6 produced from E. coli contains a mixture of monomer (15 kDa), dimer (30 kDa), and multimers. The dimer is an active polypeptide chain containing 2X142 amino acid residues.
