The bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are a family of secreted signaling molecules that can induce ectopic bone growth. Many BMPs are part of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGFB) superfamily. BMPs were originally identified by an ability of demineralized bone extract to induce endochondral osteogenesis in vivo in an extraskeletal site. Based on its expression early in embryogenesis, Bmp6 has a proposed role in early development. In addition, the fact that BMP6 is closely related to BMP5 and BMP7 has lead to speculation of possible bone inductive activity.
