SMAD5 (Mothers Against Decapentaplegic Homolog 5, MAD Homolog 5, Mothers Against DPP Homolog 5, JV5-1, SMAD Family Member 5, SMAD 5, hSmad5, MADH5)
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.
