Beyond stimulating bone formation, bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are important in development, inflammation, and malignancy of the gut. We have previously shown that BMP7 has a regenerative, anti-inflammatory, and antiproliferative effect on experimental inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in rats. To further investigate the BMP signaling pathway we monitored the effect of BMP7 therapy on the BMP signaling components in the rat colon during different stages of experimentally induced colitis…

Inhibition of the BMP Signaling Pathway Ameliorated Established Clinical Symptoms of Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis

A role for BMPs in early immune events that take place in myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG)-induced EAE is suggested and the clinical outcome of the disease was improved when the BMP signaling pathway was inhibited in mice that presented established EAE symptoms.

Regulation and function of bone morphogenetic protein signaling in colonic injury and inflammation.

Evidence is presented that BMP signaling mitigates the response of the colonic epithelium to injury and inflammation and that cytokines, such as TNF-α and IL-1β, inhibit the expression of BMP-4.

Anti-inflammatory activity of bone morphogenetic protein signaling pathways in stomachs of mice.

BMP signaling reduces inflammation and inhibits dysplastic changes in the gastric mucosa after infection of mice with H pylori or H felis.

In Silico Study and Effects of BDMC33 on TNBS-Induced BMP Gene Expressions in Zebrafish Gut Inflammation-Associated Arthritis

The role of BMPs in gut-associated arthritis is revealed and the ability of BDMC33 to act as a potential anti-inflammatory drug for suppressing TNBS-induced BMP genes in zebrafish larvae is proved.

The Role of Bone Morphogenetic Protein 4 in Microglial Polarization in the Process of Neuropathic Pain

It is indicated that BMP4 has the ability to induce microglial polarization and can relieve pain behavior via mitigating microglia activation and reversing the imbalance of the M1/M2 polarization ratio in the process of NP.

BMP Signaling in Development, Stem Cells, and Diseases of the Gastrointestinal Tract.

A review of recent studies using animal models, tissue organoids, and human pluripotent stem cells to discuss the roles played by BMPs in the development and homeostasis of GI organs with a focus on the esophagus, stomach, and intestine.

SMAD-PI3K-Akt-mTOR Pathway Mediates BMP-7 Polarization of Monocytes into M2 Macrophages

It is demonstrated that BMP-7 polarizes monocytes into M2 macrophages and enhances anti-inflammatory cytokine expression which is mediated by the activated SMAD-PI3K-Akt-mTOR pathway.

Bone morphogenetic proteins and their antagonists: current and emerging clinical uses

This review will summarize current knowledge on the BMP signalling pathway and critically evaluate the potential of recombinant BMPs as pharmacological agents for the treatment of bone repair and tissue fibrosis in patients.

Bone morphogenetic protein‐7 reduces the severity of colon tissue damage and accelerates the healing of inflammatory bowel disease in rats

The results of this study suggest that BMP‐7 plays an important role in the regulation of anti‐inflammatory response in the adult gut tissue.

CTGF inhibits BMP-7 signaling in diabetic nephropathy.

Co-immunoprecipitation, solid-phase binding assay, and surface plasmon resonance analysis showed that CTGF binds BMP-7 with high affinity and contributes to altered gene transcription, reduced MMP activity, glomerular basement membrane thickening, and albuminuria, all of which are hallmarks of diabetic nephropathy.

Bone morphogenetic protein 2 is expressed by, and acts upon, mature epithelial cells in the colon.

These data suggest that BMP2 acts as a tumor suppressor promoting apoptosis in mature colonic epithelial cells.

Bone Morphogenetic Proteins

Preclinical and clinical studies have shown that BMP-2 can be utilized in various therapeutic interventions such as bone defects, non-union fractures, spinal fusion, osteoporosis and root canal surgery.

The bone morphogenetic protein–hepcidin axis as a therapeutic target in inflammatory bowel disease

Inhibiting hepcidin expression may help to correct the anemia of IBD and may also attenuate intestinal inflammation.

BMP Signaling and Podocyte Markers are Decreased in Human Diabetic Nephropathy in Association with CTGF Overexpression

In human diabetic nephropathy, BMP signaling activity is diminished, together with reduction of podocyte markers, according to concomitant overexpression of CTGF but not SOSTDC1.

TGF-β1 and Smad7 in the regulation of IBD

In vivo administration of Smad7 antisense oligonucleotides to mice with colitis restored TGF-β1 signaling and decreased the synthesis of inflammatory molecules and the extent of gut damage, suggesting that blocking Smad 7 could be a promising way to dampen the ongoing inflammation in IBD.

Clinical Significance of BMP7 in Human Colorectal Cancer

Expression of BMP7 in colorectal tumors correlates with parameters of pathological aggressiveness such as liver metastasis and poor prognosis, and could be a useful clinical marker for coloreCTal cancer patients.

Requirement of a bone morphogenetic protein for the maintenance and stimulation of osteoblast differentiation.

These experiments support the requirement of a BMP for osteoblast differentiation and function, demonstrating for the first time that a B MP can functionally substitute for another BMP in an autocrine/paracrine manner or mediate a response to an endocrine action on osteoblasts.

Noggin haploinsufficiency differentially affects tissue responses in destructive and remodeling arthritis.

Tight spatiotemporal control of BMP signaling appears to be critical in the response of joint tissues in models of arthritis.
