Human/Mouse/Primate BMP-9 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Human, Mouse, Primate
Detects human and primate BMP‑9 in ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, no cross-reactivity with recombinant human BMP‑1, -1.1, -2, -3, -3b, -4, -5, -6, -7, -8, or -10 is observed. In direct ELISAs, approximately 80% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) BMP‑9 and 10% cross‑reactivity with rmBMP-10 is observed.

Alkaline Phosphatase Production Induced by BMP‑9 and Neutralization by Human BMP‑9 Antibody. Recombinant Human BMP-9 (Catalog # 3209-BP) induces alkaline phosphatase production in the ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Alkaline phosphatase production elicited by Recombinant Human BMP-9 (5 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Primate BMP-9 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3209). The ND50 is typically 0.01-0.04 µg/mL.

Background: BMP-9

Human BMP-9, also known as growth and differentiation factor 2 (GDF-2), is a member of the BMP subgroup of the TGF-beta superfamily proteins that signal through heterodimeric complexes composed of type I and type II BMP receptors. BMP-9 regulates the development and function of a variety of embryonal and adult tissues (1, 2). The human BMP-9 cDNA encodes a 429 amino acid (aa) precursor that includes a 22 aa signal sequence, a 298 aa propeptide, and a 111 aa mature protein (3). Unlike with other BMP family proteins, the propeptide does not interfere with the biological activity of BMP-9 and remains associated with the mature peptide after proteolytic cleavage (4). Human and mouse BMP-9 share 96% aa sequence identity. Within the mature protein, human BMP-9 shares 64% aa sequence identity with human BMP-10 and less than 50% aa sequence identity with other BMPs. BMP-9 is expressed by non-parenchymal cells in the liver, (5, 6) where it promotes lipid metabolism and inhibits glucose production (7). BMP-9 exerts a prolonged hypoglycemic effect which may be due to an enhancement of insulin release (7). BMP-9 interacts with a high affinity specific heteromeric receptor expressed on liver endothelial cells that has been identified as ALK-1 (4-6). In the embryonal CNS, BMP-9 functions in the development and maintenance of the cholinergic neuronal phenotype (8-10). BMP-9 also induces the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into the chondrogenic lineage (11, 12). At low concentrations, BMP-9 is a proliferative factor for hematopoietic progenitor cells, but at higher concentrations, it enhances TGF-beta 1 production and inhibits hematopoietic progenitor colony formation (13).
