    Recommended
    Concentration
    Sample
  • Neutralization
    Measured by its ability to neutralize GDF‑5-induced alkaline phosphatase production in the ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 2-10 µg/mL in the presence of 3 µg/mL Recombinant Mouse GDF‑5.
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.
Data Examples
Alkaline Phosphatase Production Induced by GDF‑5 and Neutralization by Mouse GDF‑5 Antibody. Recombinant Mouse GDF‑5 (Catalog # 853‑G5) induces alkaline phosphatase production in the ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Alkaline phosphatase production elicited by Recombinant Mouse GDF‑5 (3 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Rat Anti-Mouse GDF‑5 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8531). The ND50 is typically 2-10 µg/mL.

    • 6 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
Background: GDF-5/BMP-14

Growth Differentiation Factor 5 (GDF-5), also known as cartilage-derived morphogenetic protein 1 (CDMP-1) and BMP-14, is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) family which belongs to the transforming growth factor  beta (TGF‑ beta ) superfamily. GDF-5 is synthesized as a large precursor protein that consists of an N‑terminal 19 amino acid (aa) signal sequence, a 362 aa pro region and a 120 aa C-terminal mature peptide. Mature GDF-5 is a homodimeric protein which contains the characteristic seven conserved cysteine residues. GDF-5, GDF-6 and GDF-7, which share 80‑86% identity, define a subgroup within the BMP family. Like other TGF‑ beta superfamily proteins, GDF-5 is highly conserved across species. At the amino acid sequence level, mature human and mouse GDF-5 are 98% identical. It has been reported that GDF-5 has multiple functions including regulation of myogenesis, regulation of chondrogenesis, bone morphogenesis, and neuron differentiation and survival. GDF-5 response is mediated by the formation of hetero-oligomeric complexes of type I (BMPR-IB) and type II (BMPR-II or Activin R-II) sereine/threonine kinase receptors, and the activation of Smad proteins (Smad 1, 5, and 8).
