Biochem/physiol Actions

As implied by their name, bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) promote and regulate bone development, growth, remodeling and repair, in both prenatal development and postnatal growth of eye, heart, kidney, skin, and other tissues. Based on its expression early in embryogenesis, BMP-7 has a proposed role in early development. In addition, the fact that BMP-7 is closely related to BMP5 has led to speculation of possible bone inductive activity. BMP-7 induces apoptosis in B-cells. It has a role in organ development and may have a role in liver regeneration. Mutations in the gene encoding the protein have been shown to affect the development of teeth, palate and other orofacial complexes.

General description

Bone morphogenetic protein-7 (BMP-7) belongs to the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) superfamily. The gene encoding it is localized on human chromosome 20q13.
