Detects mouse BMP-8b in direct ELISAs and human and mouse in Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 50% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) BMP-8a and less than 1% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human (rh) BMP‑3b, rhBMP‑10, and rm BMP‑10 is observed.
Polyclonal Sheep IgG
E. coli-derived recombinant mouse BMP-8b Thr261-His399 Accession # NP_031585
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Detection of Mouse BMP‑8b by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of mouse brain tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse BMP‑8b Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6305) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Pro-BMP‑8b at approximately 45 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

BMP-8b (Bone morphogenetic protein 8b; also OP-3) is a 16 kDa predicted mature and 45 kDa precurser member of the Gbb-60A class of the BMP family of molecules. In mouse, precursors to sperm and oocytes arise from the proximal epiblast around day E7.5 (days 18-20 in human). This lineage commitment is a response to BMP-4 signaling, which is promoted by the repressive action of BMP-8b on the anterior visceral endoderm, a source of BMP-4 antagonism. Mouse BMP-8b preproprecursor is 399 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a 19 aa signal sequence, a 241 aa prosegment, and a 139 aa mature region. An interchain disulfide bond occurs at Cys363, generating a homodimer. Over aa 261-399, mouse BMP-8b shares 74% aa identity with mouse BMP-8a, and 69% and 93% aa identity with human and rat BMP-8b, respectively.
