Technical Data
SMAD3 (Mothers Against Decapentaplegic Homolog 3, Mothers Against DPP Homolog 3, MAD Homolog 3, Mad3, SMAD Family Member 3, SMAD 3, Smad3, JV15-2, MADH3)
Smad3 is a 50kD transcriptional modulator activated by TGF-beta and activin type 1 receptor kinase, functioning in cell proliferation, differentiation and development. Upon stimulation, Smad3 oligomerizes with Smad4 and translocates into the nucleus and binds to DNA and transcription factors.

Smad3 activity induces differentiation of selected neuronal subtypes at the expense of other subtypes.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:15,000-1:50,000
Western Blot: 1:500-1:1,000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
