Bone Morphogenetic Proteins

Title: Bone Morphogenetic Proteins
Additional Names: Bone morphogenic factors; bone morphogenic proteins; BMPs
Literature References: Multifunctional cytokines that induce formation of cartilage and bone; originally isolated from demineralized bone matrix. Structurally related to the transforming growth factor-b (TGF-b) superfamily; at least 15 closely related forms exist. All are dimers linked by 7 disulfide bonds. Prepn from rabbit bone: M. R.
