Bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP-4) is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein family which belongs to the TGF- superfamily. This protein is a vital regulatory molecule that functions throughout bone and cartilage development, specifically tooth development, limb formation, bone induction, and fracture repair. In human embryonic development, BMP- 4 is required for the early differentiation of the embryo and establishing of a dorsal-ventral axis. And it is overexpressed in patients with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva. Recombinant BMP-4 was expressed as insoluble protein aggregate in E. coli and purified by conventional chromatography, after refolding of the isolated inclusion bodies in a renaturation buffer.
