The BMPs transduce their signals through a heteromeric receptor that consists of a type I and type II receptor. BMPR1A is one of two different type I BMP receptors (BMPR1A and BMPR1B). It serves to predominantly bind BMP-4 and BMP-2 as well as other BMPs and transduces their signals when partnered with a BMP type II receptor. Molecular Biology of Colon Cancer 21 As with the TGF-␤ receptor, the best understood post-BMP receptor pathway is the Smad pathway. The R-Smads, Smads 1 and 5, partner with Smad4 (CoSmad) to transduce BMP-mediated signals from the BMP receptors (195) (Fig.
