QC51 , Quantikine Immunoassay Control Set 841 for Human BMP-7 -
The Quantikine Human BMP-7 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human BMP-7 in bone tissue extracts, cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains CHO cell-expressed recombinant human BMP-7 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human BMP-7 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human BMP-7.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision
Bone Extracts, Serum, EDTA Plasma, Heparin Plasma
Cell Culture Supernates, Urine
The recovery of BMP-7 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

EDTA Plasma (n=4)
Heparin Plasma (n=4)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of BMP-7 were serially diluted with the appropriate Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

BMPs are secreted signaling molecules that comprise a subfamily of the TGF-beta superfamily and were originally identified as regulators of cartilage and bone formation. There are at least 20 structurally and functionally related BMPs, most of which play roles in embryogenesis and morphogenesis of various tissues and organs. Biologically active BMPs are usually homodimers containing a characteristic cysteine knot structure. Heterodimers, BMP-2/BMP-7 and BMP-4/BMP-7 have also been suggested to exist and function in vivo. They are more potent inducers of bone formation than their respective homodimers. In addition, heterodimers, but not homodimers, are ventral mesoderm inducers. Heterodimer activity may be mediated by a different or additional receptor subtype. Decapentaplegic (Dpp) is one of at least five TGF-beta superfamily ligands identified in the Drosophila genome. Dpp, a functional ortholog of mammalian BMP-2 and BMP-4, is a morphogen and plays an essential role in Drosophila development. Dpp regulates embryonic dorsal-ventral polarity and is required for gut morphogenesis and outgrowth and patterning of imaginal disks.
