Smad6 and Smad7, the two I-Smads, bind directly to the BMP type I receptors and recruit the ubiquitin ligase Smurf1. This reaction leads to competitive inhibition of R-Smad binding to the type I receptor and activating phosphorylation by the receptor, and also leads to BMP receptor ubiquitination and degradation.
