Few publications describe the activity of bone morphogenetic protein-9 (BMP-9), but the consensus of these largely in vivo studies is that while BMP-9 can induce ectopic bone formation at relatively large concentrations, it is primarily active in non-skeletal locations--including the liver, nervous system and marrow. To study the effects of BMP-9 on(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins are members of the TGF-β superfamily of growth and differentiation factors. Members of the BMP family were originally isolated from bone and defined by their ability to induce de novo ectopic bone formation. Human BMP-9 shares 50-55% homology with BMPs 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 at the amino acid level [1]. Implantation of recombinant(More)
