About this book

Members of the transforming growth factor ß (TGFß) family, which include activins and bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), are essential intercellular signaling molecules that control of cell proliferation and embryonic development. The TGF-β Family provides a comprehensive view of the different members of the TGFß family and their receptors, as well as their roles in normal physiology and development and pathological conditions such as cancer.
