BMP-13 is expressed in hypertrophic chondrocytes during embryonic development of long bones. Continued postnatal expression of BMP-13 in articular cartilage suggests that it plays a regulatory role in the growth and maintenance of articular cartilage. Adenovirus-mediated BMP- 13 gene transfer to rabbit bone marrow stem cells have been reported to augment periosteal repair of osteochondral defects. The functional form of BMP-13/CDMP-2 is a disulfide-linked homodimer of two 120 amino acid polypeptide chains. This 27.5 kDa protein is obtained by proteolytic processing of a biologically inactive precursor protein of 97.7 kDa. Recombinant human BMP-13/CDMP-2 is a 27.0 kDa homodimeric disulfide-linked protein consisting of two 120 amino acid polypeptide chains.
Human GDF6 expressed in E.coli
CAT# CSC-CTK0545-10 (10 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0545-50 (50 μg)
Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE analysis.
The ED50 was determined by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC-5 chondrogenic cells in the range of 2.0-3.0 μg/ml.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Lyophilized (freeze-dried), sterile powder. Lyophilized with no additives.
Please centrifuge product briefly before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in sterile, ultra-pure water to a concentration of 0,1 - 1,0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at -20°C for future use.
Storage & Stability
The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted rHu BMP-13 should be used immediately or stored long-term in undiluted working aliquots at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
