Regulation of ACVR1 and ID2 by cell-secreted exosomes during follicle maturation in the mare.
Professors Toguchida and Ikeya have been working together to study how the ACVR1 mutation causes FOP and had been focusing on the signalling of Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) until Kyosuke Hino, a visiting scientist from the Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma Corporation, showed that the ACVR1 mutation also activates the signalling of Activin-A.
The ACVR1 gene, also downregulated in differentiated MyoD KO QM7#4 cells, plays an important role in the bone morphogenic protein pathway, which is responsible for the development and repair of the skeletal system [28].
It is caused by a mutation in the ACVR1 gene, which over-activates a cellular signaling process important for embryo development and involves a protein called BMP.
