APPLICATION

Application Note

Myostatin (MSTN) also known as growth differentiation factor 8(GDF-8) is a member of the TGF beta protein family. Myostatin is aa secreted growth differentiation factor that produced and released by myocytes. This protein negatively regulates skeletal muscle cell proliferation and differentiation. Besides, Bone Morphogenetic Protein 1 (BMP1) has been identified as an interactor of MSTN, thus a binding ELISA assay was conducted to detect the interaction of recombinant human MSTN and recombinant human BMP1. Briefly, MSTN were diluted serially in PBS, with 0.01% BSA (pH 7.4). Duplicate samples of 100 μl were then transferred to BMP1-coated microtiter wells and incubated for 2h at 37ºC. Wells were washed with PBST and incubated for 1h with anti-MSTN pAb, then aspirated and washed 3 times. After incubation with HRP labelled secondary antibody, wells were aspirated and washed 3 times. With the addition of substrate solution, wells were incubated 15-25 minutes at 37ºC. Finally, add 50 μl stop solution to the wells and read at 450nm immediately. The binding activity of of MSTN and BMP1 was in a dose dependent manner.

14 kDa.

Background

This gene encodes a secreted ligand of the TGF-beta (transforming growth factor-beta) superfamily of proteins. Ligands of this family bind various TGF-beta receptors leading to recruitment and activation of SMAD family transcription factors that regulate gene expression. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate each subunit of the disulfide-linked homodimer. This protein negatively regulates skeletal muscle cell proliferation and differentiation. Mutations in this gene are associated with increased skeletal muscle mass in humans and other mammals.
