BMPR1A is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) receptor family of transmembrane serine/threonine kinases. The BMPs are signalling molecules that belong to the transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) family of proteins and participate in several processes including cell growth, development, morphogenesis, apoptosis and immune responses. BMPs transduce their signal through the formation of heteromeric complexes with type-I and type-II receptors, which in turn activate downstream transcriptional regulators called SMADs. BMPR1A is a type-I receptor. Type-II receptors bind ligands but they require their respective type-I receptors for signalling.
