Technical Data
Bone Morphogenetic Protein 1 (BMP-1, ProCollagen C-endopeptidase, PCP, mTld, Mammalian Tolloid)
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. Several BMPs have been implicated in early skeletal development, including BMP-2, -4, -5, -7, -14, other members, such as BMP-3, -6, -7 and 13 may be involved in later stages of skeletal formation. BMP1 was first identified in osteogenic bone extracts. It is an extracellular zinc endopeptidase implicated in a variety of species. BMP1 is expressed at high levels in embryonic maternal deciduum, membranous and endochondral bone, submucosa of intestine, dermis of skin and the mesenchyme of spleen and lung. BMP1 is a shorter spliced variant of mammalian tolloid (mTld) with a 986aa sequence (chr 8p21), both of which cleave the C-propeptides of type I procollagen during the synthesis of extracellular matrix collagen fibrils. BMP-1 comprises a metalloproteinase domain, 3 CUB domains, and an EGF-like domain, which is located between the second and third CUB domains. It cleaves the C-terminal propeptides of procollagen I, II and III, induces cartilage and bone formation. It shows 7 alternatives spliced forms and ubiquitously expressed.
