Embryos of arthropods and chordates are patterned along the dorso-ventral axis by a gradient of secreted morphogens of the Bmp4/Dpp family. This gradient now appears to be shaped by the opposing activities of Bmp-sequestering proteins, on the one hand, and Bmp-releasing metalloproteases, on the other.
