Summation

Fibrillins can bind the prodomains of TGF-beta superfamily members bone morphogenic factor (BMP) 2, 4, 7, 10, and growth and differentiation factor (GDF) 5 (Sengle et al. 2008). Prodomain binding by ECM constituents may be a targeting mechanism for TGF family members (Sengle et al. 2011).
