Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B
Members of the Smad family of signal transduction molecules are components of a critical intracellular pathway that transmits TGF-b signals from the cell surface into the nucleus. Three distinct classes of Smads have been defined: the receptor-regulated Smads (R-Smads), which include Smad1, 2, 3, 5 and 8, the common-mediator Smad (co-Smad), Smad4, and the antagonistic or inhibitory Smads (I-Smads), Smad6 and 7 (1-5). Briefly, activated type I receptors associatewith specific R-Smads and phosphorylate them on a conserved carboxy-terminal SSXS motif. The phosphorylated R-Smad dissociates from the receptor and forms a heteromeric complex with the co-Smad (Smad4), allowing translocation of the complex to the nucleus. Once in the nucleus, Smads can target a variety of DNA binding proteins to regulate transcriptional responses (6-8). Oncogenic Ras antagonizes TGF-b signaling and inhibits the nuclear accumulation of Smad2 and Smad3, which may be explained through MAP kinase dependent phosphorylation of these Smads (9). Cell stimulation with EGF leads to phosphorylation of Smad2 at a cluster of serine-proline sites within its linker region, including Ser245, 250, and 255 (9).
