Receptors for ACTIVINS are membrane protein kinases belonging to the family of PROTEIN-SERINE-THREONINE KINASES, thus also named activin receptor-like kinases (ALK's). Activin receptors also bind TRANSFORMING GROWTH FACTOR BETA. As those transmembrane receptors of the TGF-beta superfamily (RECEPTORS, TRANSFORMING GROWTH FACTOR BETA), ALK's consist of two different but related protein kinases, Type I and Type II. Activins initiate cellular signal transduction by first binding to the type II receptors (ACTIVIN RECEPTORS, TYPE II ) which then recruit and phosphorylate the type I receptors (ACTIVIN RECEPTORS, TYPE I ) with subsequent activation of the type I kinase activity.
One of the two types of ACTIVIN RECEPTORS. They are membrane protein kinases belonging to the family of PROTEIN-SERINE-THREONINE KINASES. The major type II activin receptors are ActR-IIA and ActR-IIB.
Activins are produced in the pituitary, gonads, and other tissues. By acting locally, they stimulate pituitary FSH secretion and have diverse effects on cell differentiation and embryonic development. Activins are glycoproteins that are hetero- or homodimers of INHIBIN-BETA SUBUNITS.
One of the two types of ACTIVIN RECEPTORS or activin receptor-like kinases (ALK'S). There are several type I activin receptors. The major active ones are ALK-2 (ActR-IA) and ALK-4 (ActR-IB).
Glycoproteins that inhibit pituitary FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE secretion. Inhibins are secreted by the Sertoli cells of the testes, the granulosa cells of the ovarian follicles, the placenta, and other tissues. Inhibins and ACTIVINS are modulators of FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE secretions; both groups belong to the TGF-beta superfamily, as the TRANSFORMING GROWTH FACTOR BETA. Inhibins consist of a disulfide-linked heterodimer with a unique alpha linked to either a beta A or a beta B subunit to form inhibin A or inhibin B, respectively
They are glycopeptides and subunits in INHIBINS and ACTIVINS. Inhibins and activins belong to the transforming growth factor beta superfamily.
A broadly distributed protein that binds directly to ACTIVINS. It functions as an activin antagonist, inhibits FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE secretion, regulates CELL DIFFERENTIATION, and plays an important role in embryogenesis. Follistatin is a single glycosylated polypeptide chain of approximately 37-kDa and is not a member of the inhibin family (INHIBINS). Follistatin also binds and neutralizes many members of the TRANSFORMING GROWTH FACTOR BETA family.

They differ in affinity for different members of the transforming growth factor beta family and in cellular mechanisms of action.
The founding member of the nodal signaling ligand family of proteins. Nodal protein was originally discovered in the region of the mouse embryo primitive streak referred to as HENSEN'S NODE. It is expressed asymmetrically on the left side in chordates and plays a critical role in the genesis of left-right asymmetry during vertebrate development.
A factor synthesized in a wide variety of tissues. It acts synergistically with TGF-alpha in inducing phenotypic transformation and can also act as a negative autocrine growth factor. TGF-beta has a potential role in embryonal development, cellular differentiation, hormone secretion, and immune function. TGF-beta is found mostly as homodimer forms of separate gene products TGF-beta1, TGF-beta2 or TGF-beta3. Heterodimers composed of TGF-beta1 and 2 (TGF-beta1.2) or of TGF-beta2 and 3 (TGF-beta2.3) have been isolated. The TGF-beta proteins are synthesized as precursor proteins.
Bone-growth regulatory factors that are members of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily of proteins. They are synthesized as large precursor molecules which are cleaved by proteolytic enzymes. The active form can consist of a dimer of two identical proteins or a heterodimer of two related bone morphogenetic proteins.
A family of proteins that are involved in the translocation of signals from TGF-BETA RECEPTORS; BONE MORPHOGENETIC PROTEIN RECEPTORS; and other surface receptors to the CELL NUCLEUS. They were originally identified as a class of proteins that are related to the mothers against decapentaplegic protein, Drosophila and sma proteins from CAENORHABDITIS ELEGANS.
The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.
A family of BONE MORPHOGENETIC PROTEIN-related proteins that are primarily involved in regulation of CELL DIFFERENTIATION.
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
The middle germ layer of an embryo derived from three paired mesenchymal aggregates along the neural tube.

Activin and TGFbeta limit murine primordial germ cell proliferation. (1/240)

Mammalian primordial germ cells (PGCs) proliferate as they migrate from their initial location in the extraembryonic mesoderm to the genital ridge, the gonadal anlage. Once in the genital ridge, PGCs cease dividing and differentiate according to their gender. To identify ligands that might limit PGC proliferation, we analyzed growth factor receptors encoded in RNA obtained from purified germ cells shortly after their arrival in the genital ridge. Receptors for two members of the TGFbeta superfamily were found, TGFbeta1 and activin. As the signal-transducing domains of both receptor systems are highly conserved, the effects of both TGFbeta1 and activin on PGCs would be expected to be similar. We found that both ligands limited the accumulation of germ cells in primary PGC cultures. BrdU incorporation assays demonstrated that either ligand inhibits PGC proliferation. These results suggest that these signal transduction pathways are important elements of the mechanism that determines germ cell endowment.  (+info)

Expression of inhibin/activin subunits and their receptors and binding proteins in human preimplantation embryos. (2/240)

PURPOSE: Our purpose was to study the role of inhibin/activin during embryogenesis. METHODS: Transcripts of inhibin/activin subunits (alpha, beta A, beta B), activin receptors (types I and II), and follistatin were detected by a reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction in human reproductive cells and preembryos cultured alone or co-cultured with human endometrial cells. RESULTS: Transcripts of alpha, beta A, beta B subunits were all detected in granulosa luteal cells, but only beta A units were detected in endometrial stromal and decidualized cells. In human preimplantation embryos, none of these subunits were detected in embryos from the four-cell to the morula stage and only beta A subunits were detectable in blastocyst embryos. Activin receptors were detectable in all of the studied embryos and cells. Transcripts of beta A, activin receptors, and follistatin were differentially expressed in human preimplantation embryos cultured in vitro and their expressions were significantly enhanced with the presence of endometrial stromal cells. CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that there is a possible endometrium-embryo interaction via endometrial activins and preimplantation embryo receptors and that the embryonic expressions of these activins, their receptors, and binding proteins are dependent on embryonic stage.  (+info)

Assignment of transforming growth factor beta1 and beta3 and a third new ligand to the type I receptor ALK-1. (3/240)

Germ line mutations in one of two distinct genes, endoglin or ALK-1, cause hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), an autosomal dominant disorder of localized angiodysplasia. Both genes encode endothelial cell receptors for the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) ligand superfamily. Endoglin has homology to the type III receptor, betaglycan, although its exact role in TGF-beta signaling is unclear. Activin receptor-like kinase 1 (ALK-1) has homology to the type I receptor family, but its ligand and corresponding type II receptor are unknown. In order to identify the ligand and type II receptor for ALK-1 and to investigate the role of endoglin in ALK-1 signaling, we devised a chimeric receptor signaling assay by exchanging the kinase domain of ALK-1 with either the TGF-beta type I receptor or the activin type IB receptor, both of which can activate an inducible PAI-1 promoter. We show that TGF-beta1 and TGF-beta3, as well as a third unknown ligand present in serum, can activate chimeric ALK-1. HHT-associated missense mutations in the ALK-1 extracellular domain abrogate signaling. The ALK-1/ligand interaction is mediated by the type II TGF-beta receptor for TGF-beta and most likely through the activin type II or type IIB receptors for the serum ligand. Endoglin is a bifunctional receptor partner since it can bind to ALK-1 as well as to type I TGF-beta receptor. These data suggest that HHT pathogenesis involves disruption of a complex network of positive and negative angiogenic factors, involving TGF-beta, a new unknown ligand, and their corresponding receptors.  (+info)

Bone morphogenetic proteins regulate the developmental program of human hematopoietic stem cells. (4/240)

The identification of molecules that regulate human hematopoietic stem cells has focused mainly on cytokines, of which very few are known to act directly on stem cells. Recent studies in lower organisms and the mouse have suggested that bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) may play a critical role in the specification of hematopoietic tissue from the mesodermal germ layer. Here we report that BMPs regulate the proliferation and differentiation of highly purified primitive human hematopoietic cells from adult and neonatal sources. Populations of rare CD34(+)CD38(-)Lin- stem cells were isolated from human hematopoietic tissue and were found to express the BMP type I receptors activin-like kinase (ALK)-3 and ALK-6, and their downstream transducers SMAD-1, -4, and -5. Treatment of isolated stem cell populations with soluble BMP-2, -4, and -7 induced dose-dependent changes in proliferation, clonogenicity, cell surface phenotype, and multilineage repopulation capacity after transplantation in nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient (NOD/SCID) mice. Similar to transforming growth factor beta, treatment of purified cells with BMP-2 or -7 at high concentrations inhibited proliferation yet maintained the primitive CD34(+)CD38(-) phenotype and repopulation capacity. In contrast, low concentrations of BMP-4 induced proliferation and differentiation of CD34(+) CD38(-)Lin- cells, whereas at higher concentrations BMP-4 extended the length of time that repopulation capacity could be maintained in ex vivo culture, indicating a direct effect on stem cell survival. The discovery that BMPs are capable of regulating repopulating cells provides a new pathway for controlling human stem cell development and a powerful model system for studying the biological mechanism of BMP action using primary human cells.  (+info)

A quantitative analysis of signal transduction from activin receptor to nucleus and its relevance to morphogen gradient interpretation. (5/240)

Previous work has shown that Xenopus blastula cells sense activin concentration by assessing the absolute number of occupied receptors per cell (100 and 300 molecules of bound activin activate Xbra and Xgsc transcription, respectively; a difference of only 3-fold). We now ask how quantitative differences in the absolute number of occupied receptors lead to the qualitatively distinct gene responses in the nucleus through SMAD2, a transducer of concentration-dependent gene responses to activin. We show that the injection of 0.2 or 0.6 ng of Smad2 mRNA activates Xbra or Xgsc transcription, respectively, involving, again, only a 3-fold difference. Furthermore, Xbra transcription is down-regulated by overexpression of SMAD2 as it is after activin signaling. We have developed a method to isolate nuclei from animal cap cells and subsequently have quantified the amount of nuclear SMAD2 protein. We find that the injection of 0.2 or 0.6 ng of Smad2 mRNA into an egg leads to only a 3-fold difference in the amount of SMAD2 protein in the nuclei of the blastula cells that express Xbra or Xgsc. We conclude that a 3-fold difference in the absolute number of occupied activin receptors can be maintained only as a 3-fold difference in the level of nuclear SMAD2 protein. Therefore, in this example of morphogen action, there appears to be no amplification of a key cytoplasmic transduction response, and a small but developmentally important change in extracellular signal concentration is relayed directly to the nucleus.  (+info)

Activin family members in the developing chick retina: expression patterns, protein distribution, and in vitro effects. (6/240)

We have investigated whether the activin family of growth factors is involved in the regulation of retinal cell differentiation. Immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization have shown that activin/inhibin subunits alpha, betaA, and betaB; receptors II and IIB; follistatin; and a follistatin-like gene are expressed in different regions of the chick embryo retina in developmentally regulated patterns. When tested in dissociated retinal cultures, activin did not appear to affect cell survival or proliferation, but it exerted marked inhibitory effects on the differentiation of photoreceptors, while stimulating the differentiation of nonphotoreceptor neurons; both effects were concentration-dependent and follistatin-sensitive. The results are consistent with the possibility that activin family members play significant roles in the regulation of retinal development.  (+info)

Smad3 inhibits transforming growth factor-beta and activin signaling by competing with Smad4 for FAST-2 binding. (7/240)

Transcriptional regulation by transforming growth factor-beta and activin is mediated by interaction of Smad2 and Smad3 with specific transcription factors and/or DNA elements. However, Smad3 behaves differently from Smad2 in regulating transcription by a winged-helix transcription factor, FAST-2, on an activin-responsive element (ARE) in the Xenopus Mix.2 promoter. Smad3 alone was able to stimulate the ARE through FAST-2, but inhibited the ARE transactivation mediated by Smad2/Smad4 following receptor activation. We characterized the functional domains that are involved in these two activities of Smad3. Deletion of the MH1 domain as well as mutations of four lysine residues in the MH1 domain abrogated the inhibitory activity of Smad3, but did not compromise the self-stimulatory function. In contrast, deletion of the MH2 domain or a point mutation of glycine 379 within this domain obliterated the self-stimulatory activity of Smad3, but not the inhibitory activity. In an electrophoretic mobility shift assay, we found that Smad3 was able to associate with the FAST-2.ARE complex and that this association was dependent on FAST-2. In addition, Smad3 was not able to directly bind the ARE in a DNase I protection assay, in which FAST-2 binds the ARE around a motif (TGTGTATT) previously characterized to associate with the human FAST-1 protein. Interestingly, Smad4 was also able to directly associate with the FAST-2.ARE complex through binding with FAST-2. In a gel shift assay, the association of FAST-2 with Smad4 was mutually exclusive from the association with Smad3. Taken together, these data indicate that Smad3 exerts the inhibitory activity by competitive association with FAST-2.  (+info)

Human activin-A is expressed in the atherosclerotic lesion and promotes the contractile phenotype of smooth muscle cells. (8/240)

Activin is a member of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily, and it modulates the proliferation and differentiation of various target cells. In this study, we investigated the role of activin in the initiation and progression of human atherosclerosis. The expression of activin, its physiological inhibitor follistatin, and activin receptors were assayed in human vascular tissue specimens that represented various stages of atherogenesis. In situ hybridization experiments revealed activin mRNA in endothelial cells and macrophages and a strong induction of activin expression in neointimal smooth muscle cells from the early onset of atherogenesis. We developed an "in situ free-activin binding assay" by using biotinylated follistatin, which allowed us to detect bioactive activin at specific sites in atherosclerotic lesions. The mRNAs encoding the activin receptors are expressed similarly in normal and atherosclerotic tissue, which indicates that activin-A signaling in atherogenesis is most likely dependent on changes in growth factor concentrations rather than on receptor levels. In vitro, activin induces the contractile, nonproliferative phenotype in cultured smooth muscle cells, as is reflected by increased expression of smooth muscle-specific markers (SMalpha-actin and SM22alpha). Our data provide evidence that activin induces redifferentiation of neointimal smooth muscle cells, and we hypothesize that activin is involved in plaque stabilization.  (+info)

TGF-β 3 superfamily is a group of multifunctional cytokines that affect cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis, and morphogenesis (1, 2, 3) . This family consists of ,40 family members, including TGF-βs, activins, and BMPs. TGF-β superfamily ligands induce heteromeric complex formation of cognate type II and type I serine/threonine kinase receptors. Type II receptor kinases then phosphorylate serine and threonine residues in the GS domain of type I receptors, which results in the activation of type I receptor kinases (4) . Activated type I receptors signal into cytoplasm through phosphorylation of Smad proteins. Thus far, eight mammalian Smad proteins have been identified. Smad1, Smad2, Smad3, Smad5, and Smad8 are R-Smads, which are directly phosphorylated by type I receptors. Smad2 and Smad3 are activated by the TGF-β type I receptor and the activin type IB receptor, whereas Smad1, Smad5, and Smad8 are activated by BMP type I receptors and activin receptor-like kinase 1. Smad4 is a Co-Smad ...

BACKGROUND: Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are key regulators in the embryonic development and postnatal tissue homeostasis in all animals. Loss of function or dysregulation of BMPs results in severe diseases or even lethality. Like transforming growth factors beta (TGF-betas), activins, growth and differentiation factors (GDFs) and other members of the TGF-beta superfamily, BMPs signal by assembling two types of serine/threonine-kinase receptor chains to form a hetero-oligomeric ligand-receptor complex. BMP ligand receptor interaction is highly promiscuous, i.e. BMPs bind more than one receptor of each subtype, and a receptor bind various ligands. The activin type II receptors are of particular interest, since they bind a large number of diverse ligands. In addition they act as high-affinity receptors for activins but are also low-affinity receptors for BMPs. ActR-II and ActR-IIB therefore represent an interesting example how affinity and specificity might be generated in a promiscuous ...

To test our hypothesis, we examined the biological effects of activin C and produced mice that overexpress activin-beta(C). Activin C reduced activin A ...

The TGF-beta/activin/BMP superfamily of growth factors signals through heteromeric receptor complexes of type I and type II serine/threonine kinase receptors. The signal originated by TGF-beta-like molecules appears to be transduced by a set of evolutionarily conserved proteins known as SMADs, which upon activation directly translocate to the nucleus where they may activate transcription. Five SMAD proteins have so far been characterized in vertebrates. These factors are related to the mediator of decapentaplegic (dpp) signalling, mothers against dpp (Mad), in Drosophila and to the Sma genes from Caenorhabditis elegans. Smad1 and Smad2 have been shown to mimic the effects of BMP and activin, respectively, both in Xenopus and in mammalian cells, whereas Smad3 (a close homologue of Smad2) and the related protein DPC4, a tumour-suppressor gene product, mediate TGF-beta actions. We report here that DPC4 is essential for the function of Smad1 and Smad2 in pathways that signal mesoderm induction and ...
Signaling by the TGF-β superfamily is important in the regulation of hematopoiesis and is dysregulated in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDSs), contributing to ineffective hematopoiesis and clinical cytopenias. TGF-β, activins, and growth differentiation factors exert inhibitory effects on red cell formation by activating canonical SMAD2/3 pathway signaling. In this Review, we summarize evidence that overactivation of SMAD2/3 signaling pathways in MDSs causes anemia due to impaired erythroid maturation. We also describe the basis for biological activity of activin receptor ligand traps, novel fusion proteins such as luspatercept that are promising as erythroid maturation agents to alleviate anemia and related comorbidities in MDSs and other conditions characterized by impaired erythroid maturation.. ...

In recent years, a significant amount of research has examined the controversial role of activin A in cancer. Activin A, a member of the transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) superfamily, is best characterized for its function during embryogenesis in mesoderm cell fate differentiation and reproduction. During embryogenesis, TGFβ superfamily ligands, TGFβ, bone morphogenic proteins (BMPs) and activins, act as potent morphogens. Similar to TGFβs and BMPs, activin A is a protein that is highly systemically expressed during early embryogenesis; however, post-natal expression is overall reduced and remains under strict spatiotemporal regulation. Of importance, normal post-natal expression of activin A has been implicated in the migration and invasive properties of various immune cell types, as well as endometrial cells. Aberrant activin A signaling during development results in significant morphological defects and premature mortality. Interestingly, activin A has been found to have both oncogenic and

Cripto is an EGF-CFC or epidermal growth factor-CFC, which is encoded by the Cryptic family 1 gene. Cryptic family protein 1B is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CFC1B gene. Cryptic family protein 1B acts as a receptor for the TGF beta signaling pathway. It has been associated with the translation of an extracellular protein for this pathway. The extracellular protein which Cripto encodes plays a crucial role in the development of left and right division of symmetry. Mutations of it could cause congenital heart disease. Crypto is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored co-receptor that binds nodal and the activin type I ActRIB (ALK)-4 receptor (ALK4). Cripto is composed of two adjacent cysteine-rich motifs: the EGF-like and the CFC of an N-terminal signal peptide and of a C-terminal hydrophobic region attached by a GPI anchor, which makes it a potentially essential element in the signaling pathway directing vertebrate embryo development. NMR data confirm that the CFC domain has a ...

The book length of a punt is not the same as its physical distance. Hal kicked the baptismal competitive punt 90 yards in the air, but was only credited with a 40-yard punt. Because the line of scrimmage was Syracuses 40, and Hal kicked the ball through the end zone, the punt is recorded as 40 yards (the distance from the line of scrimmage to the end zone). The ball would be placed at Syracuses 20, so the net on the punt would only have been 20 yards. 90-yard punt ...

The resulting malformations include atrial and ventricular septal defects, right-sided morphology of the left atrium and left lung, and spleen hypoplasia. Based on these results, we hypothesized that mutations in the type IIB activin receptor gene are associated with some cases of LR axis malformations in humans. We report here characterization of the ACVR2B genomic structure, analysis of ACVR2B splice variants, and screening for ACVR2B mutations among 112 sporadic and 14 familial cases of LR ...

Nodal is a secretory protein that in humans is encoded by the NODAL gene which is located on chromosome 10q22.1. It belongs to the Transforming Growth Factor (TGF-β) superfamily. Like many other members of this superfamily it is involved in cell differentiation in early embryogenesis, playing a key role in signal transfer from the node, in the anterior primitive streak, to lateral plate mesoderm (LPM). Nodal signaling is important very early in development for mesoderm and endoderm formation and subsequent organization of left-right axial structures. In addition, Nodal seems to have important functions in neural patterning, stem cell maintenance and many other developmental processes, including left/right handedness. Nodal can bind type I and type II Serine/Threonine kinase receptors, with Cripto-1 acting as its co-receptor. Signaling through SMAD 2/3 and subsequent translocation of SMAD 4 to the nucleus promotes the expression of genes involved in proliferation and differentiation. Nodal also ...
University at Buffalo researchers have identified a neural pathway that could hold a key to preventing relapse in individuals recovering from cocaine addiction. Their study focused on the activity of Activin receptors in the brain that are located in regions involved in pleasure and reward.. Published online June 1 in Nature Neuroscience, the study authored by Amy Gancarz, PhD, found that the Activin pathway controls the ability of cocaine to alter the connections between various neurons. By manipulating the activity of Activin receptors, researchers were able to change cocaine-taking behavior in animal models.. Understanding this critical pathway will help us pursue new directions in potential pharmacological and gene therapies to prevent drug relapses, senior author David Dietz, PhD, assistant professor at the university medical schools Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, said in a June 18 news release.. ...
Previous structures of activin in complex with type II receptor domains showed the growth factor in two very different interprotomer conformations when compared to each other and to the canonical TGF‐β family members (Thompson et al, 2003; Greenwald et al, 2004). The structures presented here further emphasise the flexibility of activin A (Figure 7C). While the uncomplexed activin A is very similar to the activin A in the type II receptor complex structure by Greenwald et al (2004), in the Fs12 complex, the growth factor exhibits a more closed structure. Here, the fingers rotate away from the other protomer, pulling with them the interfacial α‐helix. β‐strands 1 and 2, which show the largest displacement compared to free activin, move by more than 20 Å at the tip of the fingers.. With four independent crystal structures of activin now available, it is likely that the observed conformational divergence from the canonical TGF‐β structures is a reflection of true structural plasticity ...

4213 Transforming growth factor-? (TGF-?) is a multifunctional cytokine which signals to the nucleus through cell surface transmembrane serine/threonine kinase receptors and cytoplasmic effectors, including Smad2, Smad3 and Smad4 proteins. The role of TGF-? in carcinogenesis is complex with tumor suppressor activities in early stages of disease and pro-oncogenic activities in advanced stages of invasive, metastatic disease. We recently identified a novel modulator of this pathway, TLP (TRAP-1-like protein), which associates with TGF-? receptors constitutively and with the common-mediator Smad4 upon ligand binding. We have shown that TLP regulates formation of Smad3/4 complexes and Smad3-dependent transcriptional responses. Since no inactivating mutations in Smad3 have been observed in human tumors, we hypothesized that proteins that regulate Smad3 function, such as TLP, rather than Smad3 itself might be direct targets of oncogenic change. To assess whether the expression of TLP might be ...

Activin, a member of the transforming growth factor (TGF-β) superfamily, induces mesoderm, endoderm and neuro-ectoderm formation in Xenopus embryos. Despite several previous studies, the complicated gene regulatory network and genes involved in this induction await more elaboration. We identified expression of various fibroblast growth factor (FGF) genes in activin/smad2 treated animal cap explants (AC) of Xenopus embryos. Activin/smad2 increased fgf3/8 expression, which was reduced by co-injection of dominant negative activin receptor (DNAR) and dominant negative Fgf receptor (DNFR). Interestingly, activin/smad2 also increased expression of dual specificity phosphatase 1 (dusp1) which has been known to inhibit Fgf signaling. Dusp1 overexpression in dorsal marginal zone caused gastrulation defect and decreased Jnk/Erk phosphorylation as well as Smad1 linker region phosphorylation. Dusp1 decreased neural and organizer gene expression with increasing of endodermal and ventral gene expression in ...

FGF signaling is very important to the forming of mesoderm in vertebrates, so when it really is perturbed in manifestation furthermore to its well-characterized part in maintaining manifestation. 1996; Horb and Thomsen, 1997; Zhang et al., 1998; Clements et al., 1999; Kofron et al., 1999; Xanthos et al., 2001). Many studies show that these indicators are essential for mesoderm development in Xenopus. Dominant unfavorable Activin receptors or inhibitory mRNA inhibit mesoderm development (Hemmati-Brivanlou and Melton, 1992; Chang et al., 1997; Bhushan et al., 1998; Casellas and Brivanlou, 1998). Likewise, inhibition of TGF ligands with non-cleavable precursors or by manifestation of nodal antagonists also prevent mesoderm development (Sunlight et al., 1999; Agius et al., 2000; Cheng et al., 2000; Tanegashima et al., 2000; Eimon and Harland, 2002; White et al., 2002). While nodal signaling is vital, FGF signaling also takes on a crucial GW 5074 part GW 5074 in mesoderm development, and an FGF ...
