Secondary Information

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. The assembly of BMP-3 and 3b are important in various developmental processes and organogenesis.
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
Site(s) of PTM(s)

N-glycosylation, O-glycosylation,
Predicted Disorder Regions NA
DisProt Annotation
TM Helix Prediction No TM helices
Significance of PTMs essential for protein and induces osteoblast differentiation
Additional Comments Loss-of-function analysis demonstrates that coordinated activity of xBMP-3b and cerberus, a head inducer, are required for head formation in Xenopus embryos.
