Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (Bone Morphogenetic Protein) Summary

Description: Bone-growth regulatory factors that are members of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily of proteins. They are synthesized as large precursor molecules which are cleaved by proteolytic enzymes. The active form can consist of a dimer of two identical proteins or a heterodimer of two related bone morphogenetic proteins.

Also Known As: Bone Morphogenetic Protein; Morphogenetic Protein, Bone; Morphogenetic Proteins, Bone
