BAMBI (BMP and activin membrane-bound inhibitor homolog, NMA) is a membrane spanning glycoprotein that acts as a negative regulator of TGF-beta signaling during development (1). BAMBI transcription regulation is under the influence of beta-catenin, BMP, smad3 and smad4 (2,3). BAMBI expression can increase in colorectal and hepatocellular carcinomas relative to non-cancerous tissues (4). BAMBI is expressed at high levels during odontogenesis. BAMBI is coexpressed with Bmp-4 during early Xenopus embryogenesis and can be detected in poorly metastatic human melanoma cell lines (5).
