Immunohistochemical staining (Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) of human duodenum with BMP1 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB30488) shows cytoplasmic positivity in glandular cells at 1:20-1:50 dilution.
This gene encodes a protein that is capable of inducing formation of cartilage in vivo. Although other bone morphogenetic proteins are members of the TGF-beta superfamily, this gene encodes a protein that is not closely related to other known growth factors. This gene is expressed as alternatively spliced variants that share an N-terminal protease domain but differ in their C-terminal region. [provided by RefSeq
