Human BMP-2/BMP-4 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human BMP-2 and human BMP-4 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, 100% cross-reactivity with recombinant zebra fish (rzf) BMP-2 and rhBMP-4, 20%-40% cross-reactivity with rhBMP-3, -3b, -6, and no cross-reactivity with rhBMP-5, -7, -10, or -15 is observed.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 100230
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Chinese hamster ovary cell line CHO-derived recombinant human BMP-2
Accession # P12643
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
1 µg/mL
Recombinant Human BMP-2 (Catalog # 355-BM)
Recombinant Human BMP-4 (Catalog # 314-BP)
under non-reducing conditions only
Measured by its ability to neutralize BMP‑2-induced alkaline phosphatase production in the ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cell line. Nakamura, K. et al. (1999) Exp. Cell Res. 250:351. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 5-15 µg/mL in the presence of 1 µg/mL Recombinant Human BMP‑2 and 2 µg/mL heparin. This antibody also neutralizes Human BMP-4 induced activity in the ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cell line. The ND50 is approximately 3 μg/mL in the presence of 75 ng/mL of Recombinant Human BMP-4.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Alkaline Phosphatase Production Induced by BMP‑2 and Neutralization by Human BMP-2/BMP-4 Antibody. Recombinant Human BMP-2 (Catalog # 355-BM) induces alkaline phosphatase production in the the ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Alkaline Phosphatase Production elicited by Recombinant Human BMP-2 (1 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human BMP-2/BMP-4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3552). The ND50 is typically 5-15 µg/mL in the presence of heparin (2 µg/mL).

Background: BMP-2/BMP-4

Bone Morphogenetic Protein 2 (BMP-2) and BMP-4 are two of at least 15 structurally and functionally related BMPs, which are members of the transforming growth factor  beta (TGF-beta ) superfamily, BMPs were originally identified as protein regulators of cartilage and bone formation. However, they have since been shown to be involved in embryogenesis and morphogenesis of various tissues and organs.
