Mouse DMP-1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse DMP-1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse DMP-1 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA) and tissue homogenates.
Dentin matrix acidic phosphorprotein 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the DMP1 gene. It belongs to the small integrin-binding ligand N-linked glycoprotein(SIBLING) family of secreted phosphoproteins. This gene is mapped to 4q22.1. This protein, which is critical for proper mineralization of bone and dentin, is present in diverse cells of bone and tooth tissues. In undifferentiated osteoblasts, DMP-1 is primarily a nuclear protein that regulates the expression of osteoblast-specific genes. During osteoblast maturation, the protein becomes phosphorylated and is exported to the extracellular matrix, where it orchestrates mineralized matrix formation. Mutations in the gene are known to cause autosomal recessive hypophosphatemia, a disease that manifests as rickets and osteomalacia. The gene structure is conserved in mammals.
