Developing human lung and kidney are major sites for synthesis of bone morphogenetic protein-3 (osteogenin).

Abstract

Bone morphogenetic protein-3 (BMP-3; osteogenin) is a member of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily. We used human BMP-3 cDNA probes and a specific BMP-3 polyclonal peptide antibody to analyze BMP-3 expression and synthesis in human fetal and adult tissues. Northern blot hybridization revealed two mRNA species of 7 and 3 KB. High levels of BMP-3… (More)
