One of the mechanisms by which CELL DEATH occurs (compare with NECROSIS and AUTOPHAGOCYTOSIS). Apoptosis is the mechanism responsible for the physiological deletion of cells and appears to be intrinsically programmed. It is characterized by distinctive morphologic changes in the nucleus and cytoplasm, chromatin cleavage at regularly spaced sites, and the endonucleolytic cleavage of genomic DNA; (DNA FRAGMENTATION); at internucleosomal sites. This mode of cell death serves as a balance to mitosis in regulating the size of animal tissues and in mediating pathologic processes associated with tumor growth.

The level of protein structure in which combinations of secondary protein structures (alpha helices, beta sheets, loop regions, and motifs) pack together to form folded shapes called domains. Disulfide bridges between cysteines in two different parts of the polypeptide chain along with other interactions between the chains play a role in the formation and stabilization of tertiary structure. Small proteins usually consist of only one domain but larger proteins may contain a number of domains connected by segments of polypeptide chain which lack regular secondary structure.

BMP7 acts in murine lens placode development. (1/581)

Targeted inactivation of the Bmp7 gene in mouse leads to eye defects with late onset and variable penetrance (A. T. Dudley et al., 1995, Genes Dev. 9, 2795-2807; G. Luo et al., 1995, Genes Dev. 9, 2808-2820). Here we report that the expressivity of the Bmp7 mutant phenotype markedly increases in a C3H/He genetic background and that the phenotype implicates Bmp7 in the early stages of lens development. Immunolocalization experiments show that BMP7 protein is present in the head ectoderm at the time of lens placode induction. Using an in vitro culture system, we demonstrate that addition of BMP7 antagonists during the period of lens placode induction inhibits lens formation, indicating a role for BMP7 in lens placode development. Next, to integrate Bmp7 into a developmental pathway controlling formation of the lens placode, we examined the expression of several early lens placode-specific markers in Bmp7 mutant embryos. In these embryos, Pax6 head ectoderm expression is lost just prior to the time when the lens placode should appear, while in Pax6-deficient (Sey/Sey) embryos, Bmp7 expression is maintained. These results could suggest a simple linear pathway in placode induction in which Bmp7 functions upstream of Pax6 and regulates lens placode induction. At odds with this interpretation, however, is the finding that expression of secreted Frizzled Related Protein-2 (sFRP-2), a component of the Wnt signaling pathway which is expressed in prospective lens placode, is absent in Sey/Sey embryos but initially present in Bmp7 mutants. This suggests a different model in which Bmp7 function is required to maintain Pax6 expression after induction, during a preplacodal stage of lens development. We conclude that Bmp7 is a critical component of the genetic mechanism(s) controlling lens placode formation.  (+info)

Expression of bone morphogenetic protein-7 mRNA in normal and ischemic adult rat kidney. (2/581)

BMP-7, a member of the bone morphogenic protein subfamily (BMPs) of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily of secreted growth factors, is abundantly expressed in the fetal kidney. The precise role of this protein in renal physiology or pathology is unknown. A cDNA that encodes rat BMP-7 was cloned and used as a probe to localize BMP-7 mRNA expression by in situ hybridization in the adult rat kidney. The highest expression of BMP-7 mRNA could be seen in tubules of the outer medulla. In glomeruli, a few cells, mainly located at the periphery of the glomerular tuft, showed specific and strong signals. Also, high BMP-7 mRNA expression could be localized to the adventitia of renal arteries, as well as to the epithelial cell layer of the renal pelvis and the ureter. Preliminary evidence suggests that BMP-7 enhances recovery when infused into rats with ischemia-induced acute renal failure. We examined BMP-7 mRNA expression in kidneys with acute renal failure induced by unilateral renal artery clamping. BMP-7 mRNA abundance as analyzed by solution hybridization was reduced in ischemic kidneys after 6 and 16 h of reperfusion compared with the contralateral kidney. In situ hybridization in ischemic kidneys showed a marked decrease of BMP-7 mRNA in the outer medulla and in glomeruli. Utilizing rat metanephric mesenchymal cells in culture, we also demonstrate that BMP-7 induces epithelial cell differentiation. Taken together, these data suggest that BMP-7 is important in both stimulating and maintaining a healthy differentiated epithelial cell phenotype.  (+info)

Essential roles of retinoic acid signaling in interdigital apoptosis and control of BMP-7 expression in mouse autopods. (3/581)

We previously reported that mice lacking the RARgamma gene and one or both alleles of the RARbeta gene (i.e., RARbeta+/-/RARgamma-/- and RARbeta-/-/RARgamma-/- mutants) display a severe and fully penetrant interdigital webbing (soft tissue syndactyly), caused by the persistence of the fetal interdigital mesenchyme (Ghyselinck et al., 1997, Int. J. Dev. Biol. 41, 425-447). In the present study, these compound mutants were used to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in retinoic acid (RA)-dependent formation of the interdigital necrotic zones (INZs). The mutant INZs show a marked decrease in the number of apoptotic cells accompanied by an increase of cell proliferation. This marked decrease was not paralleled by a reduction of the number of macrophages, indicating that the chemotactic cues which normally attract these cells into the INZs were not affected. The expression of a number of genes known to be involved in the establishment of the INZs, the patterning of the autopod, and/or the initiation of apoptosis was also unaffected. These genes included BMP-2, BMP-4, Msx-1, Msx-2, 5' members of Hox complexes, Bcl2, Bax, and p53. In contrast, the mutant INZs displayed a specific, graded, down-regulation of tissue transglutaminase (tTG) promoter activity and of stromelysin-3 expression upon the removal of one or both alleles of the RARbeta gene from the RARgamma null genetic background. As retinoic acid response elements are present in the promoter regions of both tTG and stromelysin-3 genes, we propose that RA might increase the amount of cell death in the INZs through a direct modulation of tTG expression and that it also contributes to the process of tissue remodeling, which accompanies cell death, through an up-regulation of stromelysin-3 expression in the INZs. Approximately 10% of the RARbeta-/- /RARgamma-/- mutants displayed a supernumerary preaxial digit on hindfeet, which is also a feature of the BMP-7 null phenotype (Dudley et al., 1995, Genes Dev. 9, 2795-2807; Luo et al., 1995, Genes Dev. 9, 2808-2820). BMP-7 was globally down-regulated at an early stage in the autopods of these RAR double null mutants, prior to the appearance of the digital rays. Therefore, RA may exert some of its effects on anteroposterior autopod patterning through controlling BMP-7 expression.  (+info)

Early embryonic lethality in Bmp5;Bmp7 double mutant mice suggests functional redundancy within the 60A subgroup. (4/581)

Members of the BMP family of signaling molecules display a high conservation of structure and function, and multiple BMPs are often coexpressed in a variety of tissues during development. Moreover, distinct BMP ligands are capable of activating common pathways. Here we describe the coexpression of two members of the 60A subfamily of BMPs, Bmp5 and Bmp7, at a number of different sites in the embryo from gastrulation onwards. Previous studies demonstrate that loss of either Bmp5 or Bmp7 has negligible effects on development, suggesting these molecules functionally compensate for each other at early stages of embryonic development. Here we show this is indeed the case. Thus we find that Bmp5;Bmp7 double mutants die at 10.5 dpc and display striking defects primarily affecting the tissues where these factors are coexpressed. The present analysis also uncovers novel roles for BMP signaling during the development of the allantois, heart, branchial arches, somites and forebrain. Bmp5 and Bmp7 do not appear to be involved in establishing pattern in these tissues, but are instead necessary for the proliferation and maintenance of specific cell populations. These findings are discussed with respect to potential mechanisms underlying cooperative signaling by multiple members of the TGF-beta superfamily.  (+info)

Expression of human bone morphogenic protein 7 in primary rabbit periosteal cells: potential utility in gene therapy for osteochondral repair. (5/581)

A commonly encountered problem in orthopedics is bone and cartilage tissue injury which heals incompletely or without full structural integrity. This necessitates development of improved methods for treatment of injuries which are not amenable to treatment using current therapies. An already large and growing number of growth factors which play significant roles in bone remodeling and repair have been identified in the past few years. It is well established that bone morphogenic proteins induce the production of new bone and cartilage. An efficient method of delivery of these growth factors by conventional pharmacological means has yet to be elucidated. We wished to evaluate the use of retroviral vector-mediated gene transfer to deliver genes of therapeutic relevance for bone and cartilage repair. To determine the feasibility of using amphotropically packaged retroviral vectors to transduce primary rabbit mesenchymal stem cells of periosteal origin, primary periosteal cells were isolated from New Zealand white rabbits, transduced in vitro with a retroviral vector bearing both the nuclear localized lacZ marker gene and the neo(r) gene, and selected in G418. We used a convenient model for analysis of in vivo stability of these cells which were seeded on to polymer scaffold grafts and implanted into rabbit femoral osteochondral defects. The nuclear localized beta-galactosidase protein was expressed in essentially 100% of selected cells in vitro and was observed in the experimental explants from animals after both 4 and 8 weeks in vivo, while cells transduced with a retroviral vector bearing only the neo(r) gene in negative control explants showed no blue staining. We extended our study by delivering a gene of therapeutic relevance, human bone morphogenic protein 7 (hBMP-7), to primary periosteal cells via retroviral vector. The hBMP-7 gene was cloned from human kidney 293 cell total RNA by RT-PCR into a retroviral vector under control of the CMV enhancer/promoter. Hydroxyapatite secretion, presumably caused by overexpression of hBMP-7, was observed on the surface of the transduced and selected periosteal cells, however, this level of expression was toxic to both PA317 producer and primary periosteal cells. Subsequently, the strong CMV enhancer/promoter driving the hBMP-7 gene was replaced in the retroviral vector by a weaker enhancer/promoter from the rat beta-actin gene. Nontoxic levels of expression of hBMP-7 were confirmed at both the RNA and protein levels in PA317 producer and primary periosteal cell lines and cell supernatants. This work demonstrates the feasibility of using a gene therapy approach in attempts to promote bone and cartilage tissue repair using gene-modified periosteal cells on grafts.  (+info)

Expression of bone morphogenetic protein 7 in murine epididymis is developmentally regulated. (6/581)

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) have been shown to play a role in the functional maintenance of the adult epididymis. To begin to investigate the role of BMP signal transduction during postnatal epididymal development, we examined the expression profile of Bmp7 in murine epididymis by in situ hybridization. Our data show that during early postnatal development (younger than 3 wk of age), Bmp7 transcripts are detected uniformly in epithelial cells throughout the epididymis. As the mice aged (from 3 to 4 wk), Bmp7 expression was gradually restricted to the initial segment, with increased levels. Bmp7 expression in the rest of the caput and corpus regions became undetectable after 4 wk of age. However, after 4 wk of age, an ascending gradient of Bmp7 expression was observed in the epididymal epithelial cells in the transition from the cauda epididymal tubule to the vas deferens. Such a unique expression profile of Bmp7 strongly suggests that epididymis-produced BMP7 may play a role in the development and functional maintenance of the epididymis, and that Bmp7 expression in the epididymis is developmentally regulated.  (+info)

Molecular characterization and phylogenetic analysis of SpBMP5-7, a new member of the TGF-beta superfamily expressed in sea urchin embryos. (7/581)

TGF-beta ligands are probably pan-bilaterian in phylogenetic distribution. The family appears to have diversified greatly with the evolution of the vertebrates, but only a few invertebrate deuterostome TGF-beta molecules have so far been isolated. A search for members of this family expressed in sea urchin embryos, using canonical PCR primers, revealed a single-copy gene encoding a new TGF-beta protein. The sequence which it encodes is closely related to those of vertebrate bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) 5-7. No additional TGF-beta family members were uncovered other than univin, which had previously been reported.  (+info)

A functional bone morphogenetic protein system in the ovary. (8/581)

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) comprise a large group of polypeptides in the transforming growth factor beta superfamily with essential physiological functions in morphogenesis and organogenesis in both vertebrates and invertebrates. At present, the role of BMPs in the reproductive system of any species is poorly understood. Here, we have established the existence of a functional BMP system in the ovary, replete with ligand, receptor, and novel cellular functions. In situ hybridization histochemistry identified strong mRNA labeling for BMP-4 and -7 in the theca cells and BMP receptor types IA, IB, and II in the granulosa cells and oocytes of most follicles in ovaries of normal cycling rats. To explore the paracrine function of this BMP system, we examined the effects of recombinant BMP-4 and -7 on FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone)-induced rat granulosa cytodifferentiation in serum-free medium. Both BMP-4 and -7 regulated FSH action in positive and negative ways. Specifically, physiological concentrations of the BMPs enhanced and attenuated the stimulatory action of FSH on estradiol and progesterone production, respectively. These effects were dose- and time-dependent. Furthermore, the BMPs increased granulosa cell sensitivity to FSH. Thus, BMPs have now been identified as molecules that differentially regulate FSH-dependent estradiol and progesterone production in a way that reflects steroidogenesis during the normal estrous cycle. As such, it can be hypothesized that BMPs might be the long-sought "luteinization inhibitor" in Graafian follicles during their growth and development.  (+info)

BACKGROUNDOsteogenic protein-1/bone morphogenetic protein-7 (OP-1/BMP-7), a member of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily, has been shown to prevent kidney damage from ischemia/reperfusion injury in rats. The molecular events involved in OP-1 action on kidney are not yet understood.METHODSIn this study, we evaluated the biodistribution of (125)I-labeled OP-1 in rat kidneys. Adult rats received a single intravenous injection of 250 microg (125)I-labeled OP-1 per kg body wt, a dose that was effective in protecting kidneys from ischemic injury. Tissue localization, in situ hybridization, and immunostaining with a specific receptor antibody were performed to identify OP-1 cellular targets. Also, isolated plasma membranes from kidney cortex and medulla regions were analyzed to identify and characterize receptor structural components that recognize OP-1.RESULTSAt 10 and 180 minutes following injection, the relative uptake of (125)I-labeled OP-1 was consistently higher in kidney cortex than ...

The lab approaches questions of pattern formation and cell fate specification in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Our current interests are the mechanisms underlying the patterning of the embryonic dorsal-ventral (D/V) axis and the asymmetric self-renewal divisions of adult stem cells. The original focus of the lab was on the role of the Bone Morphogenetic Protein family member Decapentaplegic (Dpp) in patterning the D/V axis. In the past, we demonstrated that the system that patterns the embryonic D/V axis is conserved between arthropods and chordates, identified the mechanism by which the Spemann organizer patterns the Xenopus body axis, and characterized essential and modulatory components of the Dpp signal transduction pathway. Recently, we showed that, although Dpp is broadly transcribed dorsally, receptor-bound Dpp is only observed in a sharp stripe comprising the dorsal-most cells. We have also begun to investigate processes underlying maintenance of the germ line stem cells (GSCs) ...
Objective Gremlin (grem1) is an antagonist of the bone morphogenetic protein family that plays a key role in limb bud development and kidney formation. There is a growing appreciation that altered grem1 expression may regulate the homeostatic constraints on damage responses in diseases such as diabetic nephropathy.. Research Design and Methods Here we have explored whether knockout mice heterozygous for grem1 gene deletion (grem1+/−) exhibit protection from the progression of diabetic kidney disease in a streptozotocin-induced model of type 1 diabetes.. Results A marked elevation in grem1 expression was detected in the kidneys of diabetic wild-type mice compared to littermate controls, particularly in kidney tubules. In contrast, diabetic grem1+/− mice displayed a significant attenuation in grem1 expression at 6 months of diabetes compared to age and sex-matched wild-type controls. Whereas the onset and induction of diabetes was similar between grem1+/− and wild-type mice, several ...

A number of fascinating questions remain unaddressed in the realm of skin biology. We still know very little about the mechanisms that set up the patterning of hair follicles over the surface ectoderm, or about the precise signalling pathways involved in mesenchymal-epithelial interactions during hair development and differentiation. Studies over the past 10 years have implicated both the notch and sonic hedgehog pathways in these processes (Chen et al., 1997; Chiang et al., 1999; Crowe et al., 1998; Kopan and Weintraub, 1993; Nohno et al., 1995; Oro and Scott, 1998; Powell et al., 1998; St. Jacques et al., 1998). Furthermore, we know that members of the fibroblast growth factor and bone morphogenic protein families are also involved in mesenchymal-epithelial cues required for follicle morphogenesis, hair cycling, and/or follicle differentiation (Hebert et al., 1994; Jung et al., 1998; Kratochwil et al., 1996; Noramly and Morgan, 1998; Rosenquist and Martin, 1996; Song et al., 1996).

How does the genome encode instructions that guide embryonic development? Our research uses genes that are expressed during vertebrate development as systems for investigating this question. We have two long-term goals. The first is to shed light on regulatory events driving bone and cartilage development. This is relevant to understanding birth defects, osteoporosis and arthritis. The second is to locate and understand the function of long-range genomic sequences that control gene regulation. These sequences can act across hundreds of kilobases and are often well conserved. We study these elements using tools such as BAC (Bacterial Artificial Chromosome) transgenesis and genomic sequence comparisons. Currently, we are studying three BMP (Bone Morphogenetic Protein) family genes. All are transcribed in complex patterns during development. Precise regulation of these genes is controlled by multiple, distant cis-regulatory elements. Using transgenic assays in mice and zebrafish, we are charting

BMP-14 is expressed in long bones during embryonic development and postnatally in articular cartilage. Mutations in the BMP-14 gene have been implicated in Grebe Syndrome, which is characterized by short stature, extra digits, short and deformed extremities, and in Hunter- Thompson type dwarfism. The mature and functional form of BMP-14 is a homodimer of two 120 amino-acid polypeptide chain (monomers) linked by a single disulfide bond. Each BMP-14 monomer is expressed as the C-terminal part of a precursor polypeptide, which also contains a 27 amino-acid signal peptide and a 354 amino-acid propeptide. This precursor undergoes intracellular dimerization, and upon secretion it is processed by a furin-type protease. Recombinant human BMP-14 is a 27.0 kDa homodimeric disulfide-linked protein consisting of two 120 amino acids ...
In vitro studies using the myogenic cell line C2C12 demonstrate that bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) converts the developmental pathway of C2C12 from a myogenic cell lineage to an osteoblastic cell lineage. Further, in vivo studies using null mutation mice demonstrate that BMPs inhibit the specification of the developmental fate of myogenic progenitor cells. However, the roles of BMPs in the phases of differentiation and maturation in skeletal muscles have yet to be determined. The present study attempts to define the function of BMP-2 in the final stage of differentiation of mouse tongue myoblast. Recombinant BMP-2 inhibited the expressions of markers for the differentiation of skeletal muscle cells, such as myogenin, muscle creatine kinase (MCK), and fast myosin heavy chain (fMyHC), whereas BMP-2 siRNA stimulated such markers. Neither the recombinant BMP-2 nor BMP-2 siRNA altered the expressions of markers for the formation of cartilage and bone, such as osteocalcin, alkaline phosphatase (ALP),
Egfr signaling is required in a narrow medial domain of the head ectoderm (here called head midline ) that includes the anlagen of the medial brain (including the dorsomedial and ventral medial domain of the brain, termed DMD and VMD respectively), the visual system (optic lobe, larval eye) and the stomatogastric nervous system (SNS). These head midline cells differ profoundly from their lateral neighbors in the way they develop. Three differences are noteworthy: (1) Like their counterparts in the mesectoderm, the head midline cells do not give rise to typical neuroblasts by delamination, but stay integrated in the surface ectoderm for an extended period of time. (2) The proneural gene l sc, which transiently (for approximately 30 minutes) comes on in all parts of the procephalic neurectoderm while neuroblasts delaminate, is expressed continuously in the head midline cells for several hours. (3) Head midline cells, similar to ventral midline cells of the trunk, require the Egfr pathway. In ...

Two stable cell lines expressing the hBMP2 gene, CHO-BMP2 and HEK-BMP2, were cultured in the presence of IND-1 in short-term (24 h, multi-well) and long-term (two-month, perfusion flasks) cultures. The rhBMP-2 produced was characterized by Western blot and its activity assessed using the C2C12 cell-based assay. The amount of proBMP-2 and mature BMP-2 produced was quantified by ELISA. The mRNA level of BMP-2 and furin in cells treated with or without IND-1 was compared by real-time RT-PCR. Cellular uptake of IND-1 was estimated by measuring the fluorescence of cell lysates following incubation with FITC labeled IND-1. Cellular PC activity post IND-1 incubation was measured using the Boc-RVRR-AMC substrate. Furin-specific siRNA was used to knock down the furin expression in CHO-BMP2 cells and its effect on the rhBMP-2 production was determined. ...

This gene encodes a secreted ligand of the TGF-beta (transforming growth factor-beta) superfamily of proteins. Ligands of this family bind various TGF-beta receptors leading to recruitment and activation of SMAD family transcription factors that regulate gene expression. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate each subunit of the disulfide-linked homodimer. This protein regulates a wide range of biological processes including iron homeostasis, fat and bone development, and ovulation. Differential expression of this gene may be associated with progression of breast and prostate cancer. Mutations in this gene may be associated with iron overload in human patients.

Sclerostin domain-containing protein 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SOSTDC1 gene. This gene is a member of the sclerostin family and encodes an N-glycosylated, secreted protein with a C-terminal cystine knot-like domain. This protein functions as a bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) antagonist. Specifically, it directly associates with BMPs, prohibiting them from binding their receptors, thereby regulating BMP signaling during cellular proliferation, differentiation, and programmed cell death.

The objective of this study was to examine the ability of recombinant human BMP-2 (rhBMP-2) coated onto a titanium porous oxide implant surface to stimulate local bone formation including osseointegration and vertical augmentation of the alveolar ridge. Material and Methods: Bilateral, critical-size, 5 mm, supra-alveolar, peri-implant defects were created in 12 young adult Hound Labrador mongrel dogs. Six animals received implants coated ...
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Increasingly, reports of frequent and occasionally catastrophic complications associated with use of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) in spinal fusion surgeries are being published. In the original peer review, industry-sponsored publications describing the use of rhBMP-2 in spinal fusion, adverse events of these types and frequency were either not reported at all or not reported to be associated with rhBMP-2 use. Some authors and investigators have suggested that these discrepancies were related to inadequate peer review and editorial oversight. PURPOSE To compare the conclusions regarding the safety and related efficacy published in the original rhBMP-2 industry-sponsored trials with subsequently available Food and Drug Administration (FDA) data summaries, follow-up publications, and administrative and organizational databases. STUDY DESIGN Systematic review. METHODS Results and conclusions from original industry-sponsored rhBMP-2 publications regarding

|p|Bone morphogenetic protein 2 or BMP-2 belongs to the TGF-β superfamily of proteins. BMP-2 like other bone morphogenetic proteins, plays an important role in the development of bone and cartilage. It is involved in the hedgehog pathway, TGF beta signaling pathway, and in cytokine-cytokine receptor interaction. It is involved also in cardiac cell differentiation and epithelial to mesenchymal transition. BMP-2 and BMP-7 are osteogenic BMPs: they have been demonstrated to potently induce osteoblast differentiation in a variety of cell types.|/p||p|Bone morphogenetic protein 2 is shown to stimulate the production of bone and recombinant human protein (rhBMP-2) and is currently available for orthopaedic usage in the United States.|/p|
We have previously shown that Notch signaling promotes nephrogenesis by downregulating the expression of Six2, a key transcription factor required for the maintenance of nephron progenitors (Chung et al., 2016). In that study, we performed Notch LOF and GOF analyses with Six2GFPcre, which targets undifferentiated nephron progenitors (Kobayashi et al., 2008; Park et al., 2007). Since Six2GFPcre-mediated deletion of Notch causes the differentiation of nephron progenitors to be arrested largely at RV, it does not allow us to study the role of Notch signaling in nephron segmentation. Here, to explore the role of Notch during nephron segmentation, we employed Wnt4GFPcre. Wnt4 is one of the earliest genes to be activated during the differentiation of nephron progenitors (Park et al., 2007; Stark et al., 1994). We have previously shown that Wnt/β-catenin signaling initiates the differentiation of nephron progenitors and that Wnt4 is directly upregulated by Wnt/β-catenin signaling (Park et al., 2012, ...
Treatment with 0.4mg/mL rhBMP-2 resulted in significant growth changes and fusion of the coronal sutures bilaterally, anterior sagittal suture, and frontonasal suture by cephalometric analyses at 42 days postoperatively (p,0.05). Growth changes appeared greatest in the nasal region and less in the bicoronal and anterior sagittal regions. No significant differences in cranial growth were noted with use of 100-ug/mL biopatterned rhBMP-2 when compared to the empty defect group. Qualitative uCT analysis revealed comparable bony defect healing between rhBMP-2 groups. Application of high-dose, 0.4mg/mL rhBMP-2 resulted in pansynostosis upon uCT analysis, further verifying cranial growth restriction. Low-dose, 100-ug/mL biopatterned rhBMP-2 consistently regenerated bone within the surgical defect margin without evidence of extra-sutural invasion ...
