Human/mouse/rat/bovine/porcine BMP-2 protein (bone morphogenetic protein 2) protein is member of the TGFβ family and a key regulator of embryogenesis and potent differentiation factor of embryonic stem cells (ESC) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) towards endoderm fates. BMP-2 plays roles in the differentiation of mesenchymal cells to adipocytes, epithelial cancer EMT, chondrogenesis and regulation of neuronal and glial cell development.

BMP-2 activity is determined using the BMP2-responsive firefly luciferase reporter assay in stably transfected HEK293T cells. Cells are treated in triplicate with a serial dilution of BMP2 for 6 hours. Firefly luciferase activity is measured and normalized to the control Renilla luciferase activity.
EC50 = 0.3 nM (7.8 ng/mL).
Data from Qk007 lot #10.
BMP2 migrates as a single band at 26 kDa in non-reducing (NR) conditions and 13 kDa as a single monomeric species upon reduction (R). No contaminating protein bands are visible.
Purified recombinant protein (7 µg) was resolved using 15% w/v SDS-PAGE in reduced (+β-mercaptothanol, R) and non-reduced conditions (NR) and stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue R250. Data from Qk007 lot #010
Mass spectrometry: single species with expected mass
Analytical reversed-phase: single sharp peak
Endotoxin: <0.005 EU/μg protein (below level of detection)
Recovery from stock vial: >95%
We are a company founded and run by scientists to provide a service and support innovation in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. All our products are exceptionally high purity, with complete characterisation and bioactivity analysis on every lot.
Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2) is a member of the BMP subgroup of the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) superfamily. It plays numerous roles in the developing embryo, such as embryonic patterning along the dorso-ventral axis, organogenesis, limb bud formation, and bone and cartilage growth. BMP2 protein is a potent differentiation factor and directs human pluripotent stem cells towards extra-embryonic endoderm, mesenchymal and neural lineages, and chondrocytes1. Recombinant BMP2 protein induces bone and cartilage formation in vitro and chondrogenesis in human adult mesenchymal stem cells2.
Human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2) is synthesized as a preproprotein consisting of N-terminal signal peptide, 259 amino acid residue pro-domain and 114 residue mature domain. Proteolytic removal of the propeptide enables mature BMP2 protein to form active disulfide-linked homodimers, and heterodimers with BMP7.
Mature human BMP2 protein shares 100% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat BMP2. It also shares 85% amino acid sequence identity with the related protein, BMP4, and less than 51% identity with other BMPs.
