At right, is a schematic diagram of various cross-linkages between the polypeptide chains
Stryker Corporation (Kalamazoo, MI) has patented (1) osteogenic devices comprising a matrix containing substantially pure natural-sourced mammalian osteogenic protein; (2) DNA and amino acid sequences for novel polypeptide chains
useful as subunits of dimeric osteogenic proteins; (3) vectors carrying sequences encoding these novel polypeptide chains
and host cells transfected with these vectors; (4) methods of producing these polypeptide chains
using recombinant DNA technology; (5) antibodies specific for these novel polypeptide chains
; (6) osteogenic devices comprising these recombinantly produced proteins in association with an appropriate carrier matrix; and (7) methods of using the osteogenic devices to mimic the natural course of endochondral bone formation in mammals.
