Summaries for BMP3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BMP3 Gene

  • BMP3 belongs to the transforming growth factor-beta (TGFB) superfamily. Bone morphogenic protein, also known as osteogenin, induces bone formation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for BMP3 Gene

BMP3 (Bone Morphogenetic Protein 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BMP3 include Dentine Erosion and Prostate Adenocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are p70S6K Signaling and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and growth factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is GDF10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BMP3 Gene

  • Negatively regulates bone density. Antagonizes the ability of certain osteogenic BMPs to induce osteoprogenitor differentitation and ossification.
