Compositions of proteins with chondrocyte and cartilaginous tissue inducing activity, as well as method of using those compositions, are disclosed. The compositions comprise one or more proteins of the transforming growth factor-.beta. (TGF-.beta.) superfamily of proteins, particularly bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), in combination with parathyroid hormone related polypeptide (PTHrP) or an equivalent PTH-like polypeptide.
