TGFβ isoforms
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are members of the TGFb super-family and typically appear as dimeric disulfide-linked growth factors that may regulate epithelial plasticity in normal and cancer cells. BMP homodimers (BMP2 and BMP7), and a recently described BMP2/7 heterodimer, can affect the size of the ALDHhi/CD44hi/CD24-/low breast CSC subpopulation in vitro and affect bone metastasis formation in vivo.
