Background

Bone morphogenetic protein-4 (BMP-4), also known as BMP2B and DVR4, belongs to the TGF-beta family. BMPs have been shown to promote astroglial differentiation both in vitro and in vivo. BMP-4 can also induce cartilage and bone formation (PMID 16234975). Xeno-free Recombinant Human BMP-4 is expressed in human 293 cells as a disulfide linked homodimeric glycoprotein with an apparent molecular mass of 34 kDa.
