Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are members of the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) super family. BMP3 was originally purified from bone as osteogenin, which induces osteogenic differentiation. Bone morphogenic protein 3 inhibits osteoblast differentiation and is thus a negative regulator of bone density. Bone morphogenic protein 3 plays a role in fracture healing, mechanical loading of the skeleton, development, and osteoporosis. This article reviews the various functions of bone morphogenic protein 3 and its clinical applications.
