The importance of BMPs, however, is restricted neither to skeletal development nor to prenatal development. BMP-2 expression has been reported to be critical for both extraembryonic and embryonic development , with BMP-2 shown to be essential for cranial neural crest production. Without it, the skeletal and neural derivatives failed to develop. The importance of BMPs during development has been most extensively studied in Xenopus. If BMP-4 signaling is disrupted transgenically by expression of a dominant negative form of its receptor, the ventral mesoderm is converted to a dorsal mesoderm .
During this period, expression of IL-1 and IL-6 increases, whereas the levels of OPG, M-CSF, and RANKL decline. These data suggest that the processes mediating endochondral resorption and the more prolonged phase of secondary bone remodeling differ and that the resorption of the mineralized cartilage is more dependent on the activities of M-CSF, OPG, and RANKL. In contrast, bone remodeling appears to depend on the levels of RANKL and to be coregulated by the activities of the cytokines IL-1, IL-6, and TNFα found in bone marrow.
As an example of a typical BMP structure, BMP-2 is translated as a 396-amino-acid preproprotein that contains a 19-amino-acid signal sequence for targeted secretion, a 263-aminoacid proregion, and a 114-amino-acid mature segment. Within the mature region of BMP-2, seven cysteines and one N-linked glycosylation Osteogenic Growth Factors and Cytokines and Their Role in Bone Repair recognition site are identiﬁable. The mature protein has a predicted mass of 14 kDa with an observed mass of 18 kDa, presumably due to glycosylation.
