BAMBI/NMA in Human Kidney. BAMBI/NMA was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney using Goat Anti-Human BAMBI/NMA Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF921) at 3 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in tubular epithelial cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

BAMBI/NMA is a type I transmembrane protein that shares sequence homology with the TGF-beta type I receptor family protein but has a short cytoplasmic region that lacks the kinase domain. It functions as a membrane-bound decoy receptor by competing with type I receptors to form a heterodimer with type II receptors. Mouse BAMBI/NMA share approximately 93% amino acid sequence homology with human BAMBI/NMA.
