Product Description specificalPrinciple of the Assay: This kit was based on sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. Anti- BMP-5 polyclonal antibody was pre-coated onto 96-well plates. And the biotin conjugated anti- BMP-5 polyclonal antibody was used as detection antibodies. The standards, test samples and biotin conjugated detection antibody were added to the wells subsequently, and wash with wash buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex was added and unbound conjugates were washed away with wash buffer. TMB substrates were used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB was catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the BMP-5 amount of sample captured in plate. Read the O.D. absorbance at 450nm in a microplate reader, and then the concentration of BMP-5 can be calculated.
Background: Bone morphogenetic protein 5 (BMP-5) is a member of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily of regulatory molecules. Bone morphogenetic proteins were originally identified by the ability of demineralized bone extract to induce endochondral osteogenesis in vivo in an extraskeletal site, and known for their ability to induce bone and cartilage development. BMP-5 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. It may play a role in certain cancers. Like other BMP's BMP5 is inhibited by chordin and noggin. This protein also act as an important signaling molecule within the trabecular meshwork and optic nerve head, and may play a potential role in glaucoma pathogenesis.
