|BMP-13 is expressed in hypertrophic chondrocytes during embryonic development of long bones. Continued postnatal expression of BMP-13 in articular cartilage suggests that it plays a regulatory role in the growth and maintenance of articular cartilage. Adenovirus-mediated BMP-13 gene transfer to rabbit bone marrow stem cells have been reported to augment periosteal repair of osteochondral defects. The functional form of BMP-13/CDMP-2 is a disulfide-linked homodimer of two 120 amino acid polypeptide chains. This 27.5 kDa protein is obtained by proteolytic processing of a biologically inactive precursor protein of 97.7 kDa. Recombinant human BMP-13/CDMP-2 is a 27.0 kDa homodimeric disulfide-linked protein consisting of two 120 amino acid polypeptide chains.
