Summaries for BMP7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BMP7 Gene

  • This gene encodes a secreted ligand of the TGF-beta (transforming growth factor-beta) superfamily of proteins. Ligands of this family bind various TGF-beta receptors leading to recruitment and activation of SMAD family transcription factors that regulate gene expression. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate each subunit of the disulfide-linked homodimer, which plays a role in bone, kidney and brown adipose tissue development. Additionally, this protein induces ectopic bone formation and may promote fracture healing in human patients. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]

GeneCards Summary for BMP7 Gene

BMP7 (Bone Morphogenetic Protein 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BMP7 include Spondylolisthesis and Renal Fibrosis. Among its related pathways are Elastic fibre formation and p70S6K Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and heparin binding. An important paralog of this gene is BMP5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BMP7 Gene

  • Induces cartilage and bone formation. May be the osteoinductive factor responsible for the phenomenon of epithelial osteogenesis. Plays a role in calcium regulation and bone homeostasis.
