Controlling of bone morphogenetic protein signaling

The aim of the present review is to describe the recent understanding of Bone morphogenetic proteins signaling with emphasis on the regulation of its signal transduction at extracellular level, intracellular level, Smad-interacting factors in the nucleus, and Smad-independent signaling pathways, respectively

Scholarcy highlights

  • Bone morphogenetic proteins are multifunctional growth factors and play crucial roles during embryonic development, skeletal development, and cell fate determination. Their signals are transduced from cell membrane to the nucleus through intracellular signaling mediators
  • Different signaling pathways have been identified, and elaborate of network of regulators involved in the signaling control
  • The aim of the present review is to describe the recent understanding of BMPs signaling with emphasis on the regulation of its signal transduction at extracellular level, intracellular level, Smad-interacting factors in the nucleus, and Smad-independent signaling pathways, respectively
