Bone Morphogenic Protein (PMP) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy BMP (bone morphogenetic protein) is a member of a family of proteins that promote the formation of bone and the skeleton and help mend broken bones. Although it was known that scrapings from healthy bone stimulated the healing of fractures, the nature of the regenerative mechanism remained a mystery until 1965 when Dr. Marshall Urist did an experiment in which he implanted demineralized, pulverized bone in a rabbit's muscle. Bone formed at the site. Dr. Urist called the protein responsible for this phenomenon "bone morphogenetic protein" (BMP).
