Human BMP-2 ELISA development kit contains the key components required for the quantitative measurement of natural and/or recombinant BMP-2 in a sandwich ELISA format within the range of 47-3,000 pg/mL. Using the ELISA protocol described below, this kit provides sufficient reagents to assay BMP-2 in approximately 1,000 ELISA plate wells.

Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2) is a member of the BMP subgroup belonging to the transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta superfamily. The mature BMP2 acts as disulfide-linked homodimers and heterodimers with BMP-7 after proteolytic removal of propeptide. BMP2 is capable of inducing the formation of cartilage and bone but are now regarded as multifunctional cytokines.
Reconstitution And Storage
Capture Antibody: 100μg of antigen-affinity purified goat anti-BMP-2. Centrifuge vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in 1.0 ml sterile water for a concentration of 100μg/ml. Following reconstitution the Capture antibodies may be stored at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage it is recommended to aliquot into working volumes and store at -70°C in a manual defrost freezer.
Detection Antibody: 50μg of biotinylated antigen-affinity purified goat anti-BMP-2. Centrifuge vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in 0.5 ml sterile water for a concentration of 100μg/ml. Following reconstitution the Detection antibodies may be stored at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage it is recommended to aliquot into working volumes and store at -70°C in a manual defrost freezer.
Human BMP-2 Standard: 1 μg of recombinant BMP-2. Centrifuge vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in 1.0 ml sterile water for a concentration of 1 μg/ml. The Standard may be stored at 2-8°C for one month or aliquoted and stored at -70°C for up to three months in a manual defrost freezer.
UltraAvidin-HRP Conjugate: 40μl vial. Upon receipt, UltraAvidin-HRP conjugate should be stored at 2-8°C, DO NOT FREEZE.
TMB Liquid Substrate: Aspirate and wash plate 4 times. Add 100μl of TMB HRPO Microwell Substrate Standard Kinetic One Component "Ready Use" to each well. Incubate at room temperature and monitorcolor development with an ELISA plate reader at 450 nm with wavelength correction set at 540 nm or 570 nm. The reaction may be stopped after 15-20 minutes by adding 100μl of 2 M sulfuric acid to each well.
