In addition, Erk5 directly phosphorylates Smurf2 at Thr249, leading to accelerated proteasomal degradation of Smad proteins (Smad1, 2 and 3).
The relationship between SMAD3 and other SMADs is also worth examining, as I-SMADs have been shown to regulate SMAD3 activity [63-65].
As an important regulatory factor of ECM metabolism, TGF-[beta]1 and its canonical downstream Smad proteins have been implicated in the regulation of mechanical trauma-induced SUI and many other ECM remodeling-related diseases, such as pulmonary fibrosis, myocardial hypertrophy, and angiosclerosis [9-11].

The researchers investigated whether inhibiting SMAD pathways could foster the expansion of cultured adult stem cells by preventing differentiating.
Bone morphogenetic protein signaling transcription factor (SMAD) function in granulosa cells.
Tumor necrosis factor alpha represses bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling by interfering with the DNA binding of Smads through the activation of NF-kappaB.
It forms complexes with activated Smads so they can translocate to the nucleus.
The activated T[beta]RI kinase initiates signaling through phosphorylation of specific receptor-regulated Smads (R-Smads, i.e., Smad2 and Smad3).
The crossing point of activin receptor or Smad with [beta]-actin was calculated by using the formula [2.sup.-(target gene-[beta]actin)], and the relative amounts were quantified.
A number of earlier studies performed by Massague's lab had identified that Smads undergo phosphorylations -a kind of chemical change - in a region of the protein about which little is known.
