BMPR2 Antibody #6979
|W IP||H M||Endogenous||150||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
BMPR2 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total BMPR2 protein. This antibody may also detect a 115 Kd unspecific band.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Lys763 of human BMPR2 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
BMPR2 is a type II serine/threonine receptor kinase that binds to an array of secreted bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs). BMPs belong to the superfamily of TGF-β ligands that modulate gastrulation, neurogenesis, chondrogenesis, interdigital cell death, and bone morphogenesis (1-5). In contrast to the TGF-β type II receptor, BMPR2 contains an extended carboxyl-terminal region that interacts with multiple signaling molecules to modulate the responsiveness of target genes to BMPs (6,7). BMP signaling requires oligomerization of both type I and type II receptors to elicit a functional response of target genes. BMP binding to type I and II receptors induces Smad1/5/8 phosphorylation which is required for the activation of target genes (7). In vitro and in vivo evidence suggests that defects in BMPR2 may contribute to pulmonary hypertension, inflammation, and endothelial injury (8,9).
