Bone Morphogenetic Protein 6 (BMP-6)

Bone morphogenetic protein 6 (BMP-6) is a member of a family of proteins identified originally in extracts of demineralized bone that were capable of inducing bone formation at ectopic sites. BMPs are found in minute amounts in bone material. They promote the differentiation of cartilage-forming cells and bone-forming cells near sites of fractures.
