The bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are a family of secreted signaling molecules that can induce ectopic bone growth. Many BMPs are part of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGFB) superfamily. BMPs were originally identified by an ability of demineralized bone extract to induce endochondral osteogenesis in vivo in an extraskeletal site.
BMP7, also known as osteogenic protein-1 or OP-1, plays a key role in the transformation of mesenchymal cells into bone and cartilage. BMP7 may be involved in bone homeostasis (PMID: 15621726). It is expressed in the brain, kidneys and bladder. BMP7 is also present in cancers, including breast, prostate, and colon cancers, in which it is implicated in regulating cancer cell proliferation (PMID: 16419056, PMID: 15531927). Overexpression of BMP7 mRNA in colorectal cancer patients was significantly associated with poor prognosis and low overall survival (PMID: 18259822). Recent studies suggest that high-expression level of BMP7 serves as a biomarker for poor prognosis for HCC (PMID: 23179403).
This antibody can be used to neutralize the bioactivity of BMP-7.
