Human BMP-7 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human BMP-7 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human BMP-7 in bone tissue, cell culture supernates, serum, plasma ( (heparin, EDTA) and urine.
Bone morphogenetic protein 7 or BMP7(also known as osteogenic protein-1 or OP-1) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the BMP7 gene.The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TGF-beta superfamily. Like other members of the bone morphogenetic protein family of proteins, it plays a key role in the transformation of mesenchymal cells into bone and cartilage. It is inhibited by noggin and a similar protein, chordin, which are expressed in the Spemann-Mangold Organizer. BMP7 may be involved in bone homeostasis. It is expressed in the brain, kidneys and bladder.
