Bone morphogenetic protein-1 and a mammalian tolloid homologue (mTld) are encoded by alternatively spliced transcripts which are differentially expressed in some tissues.

Abstract

Bone morphogenetic protein-1 (BMP-1) is a metalloprotease purified from extracts capable of inducing ectopic bone formation. In humans, it has a domain structure similar to that of the Drosophila dorsal-ventral patterning gene-product tolloid (Tld), but is considerably shorter. Here we show that, in humans and mice, alternatively spliced transcripts encode… (More)
