The calcium phosphate induced osteogenesis and the protein level investigation in the formed bone tissue were investigated. The bone-like tissues formed in the pores of calcium phosphate ceramics, implanted in four dogs, were analyzed. The results showed that native bone morphogenic protein (BMP)-2 and BMP-4 were expressed in the new-formed tissue in calcium phosphate heterotopic implants, but difference in localization and intensity of these proteins were observed. It was suggested that native BMPs influence the heterotopic osteogenesis.
