BMP-2 belongs to the Bone-growth regulatory factors that are members of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) superfamily of proteins. They are synthesized as large precursor molecules which are cleaved by proteolytic enzymes. The active form can consist of a dimer of two identical proteins or a heterodimer of two related bone morphogenetic proteins.

Images: At 45 days, the bone mineralization rates of the (A) rhBMP-2/CPC and the (B) rhBMP-2/GM/CPC groups were greater than those of the (C) untreated group, and the rates of the rhBMP-2/GM/CPC group were greater than those of the rhBMP-2/CPC group. However, there were no differences in the mineralization rates among the (D) rhBMP-2/CPC, (E) rhBMP-2/GM/CPC, and (F) untreated groups at 140 days (Double fluorescent labeling; original magnification, ×100).
