Recombinant Human BMP6

Cat. No.: BMP6-68H
Product Overview: Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 6 (Gln382-His513) was expressed in NSO Cells.
Description: Bone Morphogenetic Protein 6 (BMP-6), also known as Vgr-1, is one of at least 15 structurally and functionally related BMPs which are members of the transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) superfamily. Human BMP-6 is synthesized as a 513 amino acid (aa) precursor protein that is cleaved at the dibasic cleavage site (RxxR) to release the 18 kDa C-terminal mature protein. Biologically active BMP -6 consists of a disulfide-linked homodimer of the mature proteins. Mature human BMP-6 shares 96% and 98% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat BMP-6, respectively. Cellular responses to BMP-6 are mediated by hetero-oligomeric complexes of type I (Activin RIA/ALK -2 and BMPR-IA/ALK-3) and type II (Activin RIIA and BMPR-II) serine/threonine kinase receptors. Glycosylation of BMP-6 is required for its interaction with Activin RIA. BMP6 induces the expression of Noggin and is subsequently antagonized by Noggin. BMP-6 induces a wide range of cellular responses. It promotes osteoblast differentiation from mesenchymal stem cells, chondrocyte maturation (9), Ang II-induced aldosterone production in the adrenal cortex, hormone production and responsiveness in ovarian granulosa cells, iNOS and TNF-α production in macrophages, the cell death of B cells, and neurite outgrowth. BMP-6 expression is induced in astrocytes surrounding sites of brain injury where it functions as a neuroprotectant. BMP-6 is up-regulated during prostate cancer progression and promotes tumor cell metastasis to bone. Through interactions with the BMP coreceptor RGM-C/Hemojuvelin, BMP-6 plays an important role in iron homeostasis by promoting Hepcidin expression and preventing serum iron overload.
Source: Mouse NSO Cells
Sequence: Gln382-His513
SDS-PAGE: 18 kDa, reducing conditions
