Analysis Note

The biological activity is measured by its ability to induce alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cells.

Physical form

Lyophilized from 200 ul 0.2 μm filtered solution in 40% acetonitrile, 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid containing 50ug bovine serum albumin per 1 ug as a carrier protein.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cellular responses to BMP-6 are mediated by the formation of hetero-oligomeric complexes of type I and type II serine/threonine kinase receptors. Mature human and murine BMP-6 demonstrates 96% homology.
