Coelomic expression of a novel bone morphogenetic protein in regenerating arms of the brittle star Amphiura filiformis


The bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are a family of signalling molecules involved in numerous developmental processes including cell fate determination in embryonic ectoderm of vertebrate and invertebrate species. Recently, published evidence has indicated that BMPs are involved in echinoderm adult tissue regeneration. We have cloned a novel member of… (More)
