BMP2-induced apoptosis is mediated by activation of the TAK1-p38 kinase pathway that is negatively regulated by Smad6.


Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2), a member of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) superfamily, regulates a variety of cell fates and functions. At present, the molecular mechanism by which BMP2 induces apoptosis has not been fully elucidated. Here we propose a BMP2 signaling pathway that mediates apoptosis in mouse hybridoma MH60 cells whose… (More)
