Product Name Recombinant Mouse BMP10/BMP-10 Protein
Synonym b2b2711Clo, BMP-10
Background Bone morphogenetic protein 10 (BMP-10), along with BMP-9, GDF-5, -6, and -7, belongs to a subgroup of TGF-beta superfamily proteins that signal through heterodimeric complexes composed of type I and type II BMP receptors. Proteolytic removal of the propeptide from the 60 kDa proprotein yields a 12 kDa mature BMP-10 which forms disulfide-linked nonglycosylated homodimers. In transfectants, BMP-10 can also be secreted as a proprotein which binds to matrix fibrillin. Mature mouse BMP-10 shares 98% and 100% amino acid sequence identity with human and rat BMP-10, respectively, and 48%-64% with mouse BMP-9, GDF-5, -6, and -7. BMP-10 is critical for the proper development of the heart and first appears at the onset of trabeculation and chamber formation. Homozygous BMP-10 knockout mice die in utero due to arrested cardiac development. BMP-10 is required for maintaining expression of the cardiogenic transcription factors NKX2.5 and MEF2C in developing myocardium and promoting the Notch-dependent growth of embryonic cardiomyocytes.
