Bone Morphogenetic Protein 6 (BMP‑6), also known as Vgr-1, is one of at least 15 structurally and functionally related BMPs which are members of the transforming growth factor  beta (TGF-beta ) superfamily. Mouse BMP‑6 is synthesized as a 510 amino acid (aa) precursor protein that is cleaved at the dibasic cleavage site (RxxR) to release the 18 kDa C‑terminal mature protein. Biologically active BMP‑6 consists of a disulfide-linked homodimer of the mature proteins (1, 2). Mature mouse BMP‑6 shares 96% and 98% aa sequence identity with human and rat BMP‑6, respectively. Cellular responses to BMP‑6 are mediated by hetero-oligomeric complexes of type I (Activin RIA/ALK-2 and BMPR-IA/ALK-3) and type II (Activin RIIA and BMPR-II) serine/threonine kinase receptors (3 - 5). Glycosylation of BMP‑6 is required for its interaction with Activin RIA (6). BMP‑6 induces the expression of Noggin and is subsequently antagonized by Noggin (7, 8). BMP‑6 induces a wide range of cellular responses. It promotes osteoblast differentiation from mesenchymal stem cells (5), chondrocyte maturation (9), Ang II-induced aldosterone production in the adrenal cortex (3), hormone production and responsiveness in ovarian granulosa cells (10), iNOS and TNF-alpha production in macrophages (4), the cell death of B cells (8), and neurite outgrowth (11). BMP‑6 expression is induced in astrocytes surrounding sites of brain injury where it functions as a neuroprotectant (11, 12). BMP‑6 is upregulated during prostate cancer progression and promotes tumor cell metastasis to bone (13). Through interactions with the BMP coreceptor RGM‑C/Hemojuvelin, BMP‑6 plays an important role in iron homeostasis by promoting Hepcidin expression and preventing serum iron overload (14, 15).
