BMP7 (Bone morphogenetic protein 7), which belongs to the TGF-β superfamily, is a signaling molecule with the ability to promote bone formation. BMP7 has also been implicated in various types of cancer, including breast cancer. It has been reported that BMP7 treatment induced cell growth promotion of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer line. To test the effect of BMP7 on cell proliferation, MDA-MB-231 cells were seeded into triplicate wells of 96-well plates at a density of 2000 cells/well and allowed to attach overnight, then the medium was replaced with serum-free standard DMEM prior to the addition of various concentrations of BMP7. After incubated for 72h, cells were observed by inverted microscope and cell proliferation was measured by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8). Briefly, 10 μl of CCK-8 solution was added to each well of the plate, then the absorbance at 450nm was measured using a microplate reader after incubating the plate for 1-4 hours at 37ºC. The dose-effect curve that BMP7 significantly promoted cell proliferation of MDA-MB-231 cells. The ED₅₀ for this effect is typically 3. 483-9. 017 ng/ml.
Reconstitute with 20mM Tris and 150mM NaCl (pH8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0mg/ml. Do not vortex. Lyophilized from 20mM Tris (pH8.0), 150mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 1mM DTT, 0.01% SKL, 5% Trehalose.

bone morphogenetic protein 7 , OP1
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. Mutation of this gene results in skeletal, kidney, and other developmental defects.
