Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given antibody. We\'ve tested the GDF2 Polyclonal Antibody with the following immunoassay(s):
Western Blot (WB) (Western Blot analysis of Mouse heart and liver tissue using GDF2 Polyclonal Antibody at dilution of 1:200)
Immunohistochemistry (IHC) (Immunohistochemistry of paraffin-embedded Human ovarian cancer using GDF2 Polyclonal Antibody at dilution of 1:40)
Immunohistochemistry (IHC) (Immunohistochemistry of paraffin-embedded Human liver cancer using GDF2 Polyclonal Antibody at dilution of 1:40)
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) family and the TGF-beta superfamily. This group of proteins is characterized by a polybasic proteolytic processing site which is cleaved to produce a mature protein containing seven conserved cysteine residues. The members of this family are regulators of cell growth and differentiation in both embryonic and adult tissues. Studies in rodents suggest that this protein plays a role in the adult liver and in differentiation of cholinergic central nervous system neurons. Mutations in this gene are associated with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.
Immunogen: Synthetic peptide of human GDF2
Calculated Molecular Weight: 47kDa. Buffer: PBS with 0.05% sodium azide, 50% glycerol, pH7.3. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing GDF2 are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as GDF2 may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. GDF2 also interacts with the following gene(s): ACVRL1, BMPR2, CHAT, ENG, HAMP, HEY1, SMAD5, SMAD9. Liver tissues are correlated with this protein. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene.
