Summaries for BMP2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BMP2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the transforming growth factor-beta (TGFB) superfamily. The encoded protein acts as a disulfide-linked homodimer and induces bone and cartilage formation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for BMP2 Gene

BMP2 (Bone Morphogenetic Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BMP2 include chromosome 17p duplication and hemochromatosis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and TGF-Beta Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and cytokine activity. An important paralog of this gene is GDF3.
