Technical Data
SMAD4 (Mothers Against Decapentaplegic Homolog 4, SMAD 4, Mothers Against DPP Homolog 4, Deletion Target In Pancreatic Carcinoma 4, MAD Homolog 4, SMAD Family Member 4, hSMAD4, DPC4, MADH4)
DPC4 (also named SMAD4; small mothers against decapentaplegic deleted in pancreatic carcinoma). The family of SMAD molecules comprises essential mediators of transforming growth factor beta (TGF-b) signaling. To date, seven members of this family have been identified, each plays a specific and separate role in mediating TGF-b superfamily gene transcription. At least two different members, Smad2 and Smad4/DPC4, have been implicated in human cancer and appear to have tumor-suppressor functions whose inactivation may play an important role in the histogenesis of pancreatic and colorectal malignancy and possibly other human cancers as well.

Suitable for use in Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot and Immunofluorescence. Other applications not tested.
