Human BMP-5 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human BMP-5 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human BMP-5 in cell culture supernates, serum and bone tissue.
Bone morphogenetic protein 5 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the BMP5 gene.1,2,3 The protein encoded by this gene is member of the TGFbeta superfamily. Bone morphogenetic proteins are known for their ability to induce bone and cartilage development. BMP5 may play a role in certain cancers. Like other BMP's BMP5 is inhibited by chordin and noggin. It is expressed in the trabecular meshwork and optic nerve head and may have a role in the development and normal function. It is also expressed in the lung and liver. BMP-5 is mapped on human chromosome 6.4 The standard used in this kit is recombinant BMP-5 with the monomer molecular mass of 18KDa.
