The BMPs belong to the TGF- Beta superfamily, whose members are widely represented throughout the animal kingdom. The BMPs are important regulators of key events in the processes of bone formation during embryogenesis, postnatal growth, remodeling and regeneration of the skeleton. The BMPs function by binding to a receptor complex that is found on all normal cells and is composed of type-I and II receptors. The primary unit of bone formation is osteoblast, the bone-forming cell. These osteoblast cells respond to physical loading by transducing signals that alter gene expression patterns, and Cbfa (core binding factor), the osteoblast specific transcription factor plays an important role in osteoblast differentiation and function.
BMP activities are modulated through gene expression, protein processing and by interaction with antagonists. The interplay between BMPs and their antagonists such as noggin & chordin governs developmental and cellular processes as diverse as establishment of the embryonic dorsal-ventral axis, induction of neuronal tissue, and formation of joints in the skeletal system and the neurogenesis in the adult brain.
Localization studies in both human and mouse tissues have demonstrated high levels of mRNA expression and protein synthesis for various BMPs in kidney, heart, lung, small intestine, limb bud and teeth. Several BMPs have been implicated in early skeletal development, including BMP-2, -4, -5, -7, -14 (CDMP-1 / GDF-5), other members, such as BMP-3, -6, -7 and 13 (CDMP-2 / GDF-6) may be involved in later stages of skeletal formation.
BMP7 or OP1, a 431-amino acid polypeptide that includes a secretory signal sequence, (Chr 20), expressed in kidney, bladder and brain. Incuces cartilage and bone formation may be the osteoinductive factor responsible for the phenomenon of epithelial osteogenesis. It plays a role in calcium regulation and bone homeostasis.
