Bone Morphogenetic Protein-1 Biological Materials
WARF: P96200US

Inventors: Daniel Greenspan, Kazuhiko Takahara

The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is seeking commercial partners interested in developing materials for expressing BMP-1.
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are critical for the formation of cartilage and its conversion into bone.
The Invention
UW-Madison researchers have developed DNA clones, antibodies, vectors and cell lines for expressing bone morphogenetic protein-1 (BMP-1). These materials can be used to produce recombinant BMP-1.
  • Detecting BMP-1 protein and RNA
Key Benefits
  • Potentially useful in high throughput screening for inhibitors of BMP-1
  • May be used in X-ray crystallography prior to drug design
