|Protein Name||Bone morphogenetic protein 3|
|Ref Sequence Id||NP_001179197.1|
|Amino Acid Lenth||475|
|Protein Existence Status||Reviewed: Experimental evidence at protein level|
|Protein Function||multifunctional cytokines that elicit pleiotropic effects on biological processes such as cell proliferation, cell differentiation and tissue morphogenesis; can exert either mitogenic or anti-mitogenic activities; recognized roles in bone formation during mammalian development|
|Biochemical Properties||BMPs dimeric molecules are constituted by about 120 amino acids, including seven conserved cysteine residues, from which six are highly conserved, comprising a cysteine knot motif linked by three intramolecular disulfide bonds; BMP3 may form non-covalent dimers due to the lack of this cysteine|
|Significance in milk||BMP 4 potentiates growth factor-induced proliferation of mammary epithelial cells|
|PTMs||As found in human kidney, BMP 2 Glycosylated: high-mannose and complex N-linked oligosaccharides; contains five Glycosylated: potential N-linked glycosylation sites (Asn-Xaa-Ser/Thr) at the N135, N163, N164, N200 and N338 positions, four in the prosegment domain and one in the mature region|
|Significance of PTMs||essential for protein and induces osteoblast differentiation|
