General information

  • BMP-11 plays a unique role in patterning both mesodermal and neural tissues. [1]
  • GDF11 forms a bone morphogenetic protein 1-activated latent complex that can modulate nerve growth factor-induced differentiation. [2]
  • Gdf11 is a secreted signal that acts globally to specify positional identity along the anterior/posterior axis. [3]
  • GREMLIN and DANTE are secreted antagonists for BMPs and SLITs. [4]
