SMAD4 (Mothers Against Decapentaplegic Homolog 4, MAD Homolog 4, Mothers Against DPP Homolog 4, Deletion Target in Pancreatic Carcinoma 4, SMAD Family Member 4, SMAD 4, hSMAD4, DPC4, MADH4)
Description:
Smad proteins, the mammalian homologs of the Drosophila Mothers against dpp (Mad), have been implicated as downstream effectors of TGFb/BMP signaling. Smad1, Smad5, and Smad8 are effectors of BMP2 and BMP4 function while Smad2 and Smad3 are involved in TGF-b and activin-mediated growth modulation. Smad4 has been shown to mediate all of the above activities through interaction with various Smad family members. Smad6 and Smad7 regulate the response to activin/TGFb signaling by interfering with TGFb-mediated phosphorylation of other Smad family members.

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