|This antibody is suitable for Cancer, Immunology and Nuclear Signaling research. Smad3 (also known as Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 3 Mothers against DPP homolog 3, Mad3, hMAD-3, JV15-2 or hSMAD3) is a transcriptional modulator activated by TGF-beta (transforming growth factor) and activin type 1 receptor kinase. These activators exert diverse effects on a wide array of cellular processes. The Smad proteins mediate much of the signaling responses induced by the TGF-ß superfamily. Briefly, activated type I receptor phosphorylates receptor-activated Smads (R-Smads) at their c-terminal two extreme serines in the SSXS motif, e.g. Smad2 and Smad3 proteins in the TGF-b pathway, or Smad1, Smad5 or Smad8 in the BMP pathway. Then the phosphorylated R-Smad translocated into nucleus, where they regulate transcription of target genes. Based on microarray and animal model experiments, Smad3 accounts for at least 80% of all TGF-ß-mediated response.

Western blot using affinity purified anti-Smad3 antibody shows detection of endogenous Smad3 in both unstimulated and stimulated cell lysates. Lysates were prepared from control cells (- lanes), or cells stimulated with 2 ng/ml TGF-ß lanes for 1 hour. This reagent recognizes both non-phosphorylated and phosphorylated Smad3 protein.

Affinity Purified anti-Smad3 antibody shows strong cytoplasmic and membranous staining of tumor cells in cancerous human liver tissue. Tissue was formalin-fixed and paraffin embedded. Brown color indicates presence of protein, blue color shows cell nuclei. Personal Communication, Kenneth Wester, www.proteinatlas.org, Uppsala, Sweden.
