Other claims provide for growth factors such as BMP-2, BMP-4, BMP-6, BMP-7, transforming growth factor (TGF-?), and insulin growth factor (IGF-I).
(36) reported that BMP-6 induced the expression of TNF-[alpha] of RAW 264.7 cells.
Indeed, the biological activity of BMP-2 and BMP-7 was reduced following chemical deglycosylation [41], and N-glycosylation at the Asn 73 residue in the wrist epitope of BMP-6 is essential for its recognition by the type I receptor [42].
Furthermore, although neither Pb nor TGF-[beta] alone affected the expression of BMP-6, in combination they induced its expression 3-fold (Zuscik et al.
