Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are members of the transforming growth factor b superfamily (Wozney, 1992). Three BMP receptor (BMPR) molecules are known. One type II receptor (Nohno et al., 1995) and one of the two type I receptors (BMPR-IA and -IB) (ten Dijke et al., 1993; ten Dijke et al., 1994) heteromerize to form a functional BMPR. We have reported cloning of the human BMPR1B cDNA and analyzed the expression of BMPRs in human tissues (Ide et al., 1997). BMPs and their receptors are…

Molecular Characterization and Expression of Porcine Bone Morphogenetic Protein Receptor-IB in the Uterus of Cyclic and Pregnant Gilts1

Findings show that BMPR-IB mRNA expression is regulated differently in cyclic and pregnant gilts; this pattern of gene expression may be important for endometrial function during the luteal phase of the estrous cycle as compared with early pregnancy.

Combinatorial signaling through BMP receptor IB and GDF5: shaping of the distal mouse limb and the genetics of distal limb diversity.

In vivo support is provided for the concept of combinatorial BMP signaling, in which distinct outcomes result both from a single receptor being triggered by different ligands and from asingle ligand binding to different receptors.

A 6.3 Mb maternally derived microduplication of 20p13p12.2 in a fetus with Brachydactyly type D and related literature review

This study provides important evidence for the current understanding of genotype–phenotype association of this 6.3 Mb size duplication in the 20p13p12.2 region of chromosome 20 including the BMP2 gene with discordant phenotypes between the mother and the fetus.

Initiation of BMP2 signaling in domains on the plasma membrane

This work proposes an extension of the current model of BMP2 signaling, in which the initiation of Smad signaling is mediated by BMPRs in caveolae, and indicates that B MP2 binds with highest force to BMP receptors (BMPRs) localized in Caveolae.

It is suggested that sequence differentiation within the TFPD led to distinct groups of proteins whose attributes were optimized to fit both the physicochemical properties specific to their functional microenvironment and selective targeting of their highly diversified extracellular cofactors.

Juvenile polyposis syndrome

The JPS belongs to the group of hamartomatous polyposes, a group of diseases in which manifestations differ slightly and only molecular diagnostics gives the possibility of verifying the clinical diagnosis.

Deletion within SMAD 4 Gene Cause JPS Resulting in Total Abdominal Colectomy with Ileorectal Anastomosis

Familial molecular analysis showed that both parents are not carrier for any mutation and molecular DNA sequencing revealed presence of a de nova heterozygous c.1245_1248CAGA mutation that located within the highly conserved MH2 domain of the SMAD4 gene.

Hamartomous polyposis syndromes

Hamartomas are malformations of mucosa, consisting of disorganized normal tissues, which form a rather heterogeneous group of disorders both in respect to the number and localization of polyps and the risk of cancer in the alimentary tract and other organs.

Hamartomatous polyposis syndromes

The correct diagnosis of the disease using molecular methods allows treatment to be implemented earlier and therefore more effectively since it is followed by a strict monitoring of organs that manifest a predisposition for neoplastic transformation.

These studies demonstrate that the BMP mRNAs are spatially and temporally expressed appropriately for the proteins involved in the induction and development of cartilage and bone in the embryonic limb bud.

Identification of a Human Type II Receptor for Bone Morphogenetic Protein-4 That Forms Differential Heteromeric Complexes with Bone Morphogenetic Protein Type I Receptors (*)

A cDNA encoding a novel transmembrane serine/threonine kinase from human skin fibroblasts is isolated and demonstrated here to be a type II receptor that binds BMP-4, suggesting that the different heteromeric BMP receptor complexes have different signaling potential.

Characterization of type I receptors for transforming growth factor-beta and activin.

A systematic analysis revealed that most ALKs formed heteromeric complexes with the type II receptors for TGF-beta and activin after overexpression in COS cells; however, among the six ALK’s, only ALK-5 was a functional T GF-beta type I receptor for activation of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, and only ALF-4 bound activin with high affinity.

Mapping of the newly identified biliverdin-IX beta reductase gene (BLVRB) to human chromosome 19q13.13-->q13.2 by fluorescence in situ hybridization.

The human biliverdin-IX beta reductase gene (BLVRB) has been newly isolated from a human liver cDNA library. We now report the chromosome mapping of this gene by fluorescence in situ hybridization,

Activin receptor-like kinases: a novel subclass of cell-surface receptors with predicted serine/threonine kinase activity.

The results suggest that each ALK may have different in vivo functions, and suggest that ALK-1 to -4 are receptors that may bind ligands that are members of the TGF-beta superfamily.
