Moreover, BMPs have been shown to exert their proadipogenic effects through the intracellular proteins Smads, which may also be important for preadipocyte commitment. Notably, both Zfp423 and Schnurri-2 are BMP-dependent transcriptional coactivators of Smad proteins [102], which confer their proadipogenic effects [83, 103]. Likewise, expression of BMP-4, BMP-4 receptors, and Smads is elevated in a cell line of MSCs that have increased adipogenic potential [100]. Lysyl oxidase (Lox) is another BMP-dependent transcriptional target of Smad 1/4 that is important for preadipocyte commitment; as knockdown of Lox impairs the commitment of MSCs to the adipocyte lineage and inhibits the adipogenesis of murine fibroblasts [88].
