Summary: (from NCBI-Entrez) ..[read more]The bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) receptors are a family of transmembrane serine/threonine kinases that include the type I receptors BMPR1A and BMPR1B and the type II receptor BMPR2. These receptors are also closely related to the activin receptors, AC
Canalis E, et al. (Endocr Rev. 2003) discussed the BMPs and their receptors in the latest rewiew. BMP-2 and BMP-4 are 92% identical in their amino acid sequence. They both bind to type IA and IB receptors.
