Bone morphogenetic protein 7 (BMP-7), also known as osteogenic protein 1 (OP-1), belongs to the TGF-β superfamily and is expressed in the brain, kidneys and bladder. BMP-7 is involved in bone homeostasis and plays a key role in the transformation of mesenchymal cells into bone and cartilage. The expression of BMP-7 causes ventral phenotypes while its complete inhibition creates a dorsal phenotype. Human recombinant BMP-7 protein can be used to aid in the fusion of vertebral bodies to prevent neurologic trauma. It also functions in the treatment of tibial non-union fracture, frequently in cases where a bone graft has failed. It is also found that BMP-7 has the potential for treatment of chronic kidney disease.
AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
