Detailed product information

Background information

Bone morphogenetic protein 6 (BMP-6) is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein family, which is part of the TGF-β superfamily. BMP-6 plays an important role in embryogenesis, tissue morphogenesis, and cell differentiation and migration. It can signal through various receptor complexes inducing SMAD signaling and other processes. Differential expression of BMP-6 may be associated with progression of breast and prostate cancer.

Biological activity

  • Alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC-5 cells.

Quality description

Research-grade
cytokines are suitable for a wide variety of cell culture applications. They are sterile-filtered prior to lyophilization. Generally, endotoxin levels are <0.1 ng/μg (<1 EU/μg), and purities are >95%. The biological activity is tested in appropriate bioassays.
