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.Transforming Growth Factor beta: 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.

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.

Convergence of transforming growth factor-beta and vitamin D signaling pathways on SMAD transcriptional coactivators. (1/237)

Cell proliferation and differentiation are regulated by growth regulatory factors such as transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) and the liphophilic hormone vitamin D. TGF-beta causes activation of SMAD proteins acting as coactivators or transcription factors in the nucleus. Vitamin D controls transcription of target genes through the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Smad3, one of the SMAD proteins downstream in the TGF-beta signaling pathway, was found in mammalian cells to act as a coactivator specific for ligand-induced transactivation of VDR by forming a complex with a member of the steroid receptor coactivator-1 protein family in the nucleus. Thus, Smad3 may mediate cross-talk between vitamin D and TGF-beta signaling pathways.  (+info)

A Meis family protein caudalizes neural cell fates in Xenopus. (2/237)

A homologue of the Drosophila homothorax (hth) gene, Xenopus Meis3 (XMeis3), was cloned from Xenopus laevis. XMeis3 is expressed in a single stripe of cells in the early neural plate stage. By late neurula, the gene is expressed predominantly in rhombomeres two, three and four, and in the anterior spinal cord. Ectopic expression of RNA encoding XMeis3 protein causes anterior neural truncations with a concomitant expansion of hindbrain and spinal cord. Ectopic XMeis3 expression inhibits anterior neural induction in neuralized animal cap ectoderm explants without perturbing induction of pan-neural markers. In naive animal cap ectoderm, ectopic XMeis3 expression activates transcription of the posteriorly expressed neural markers, but not pan-neural markers. These results suggest that caudalizing proteins, such as XMeis3, can alter A-P patterning in the nervous system in the absence of neural induction. Regionally expressed proteins like XMeis3 could be required to overcome anterior signals and to specify posterior cell fates along the A-P axis.  (+info)

Synergistic signaling in fetal brain by STAT3-Smad1 complex bridged by p300. (3/237)

The cytokines LIF (leukemia inhibitory factor) and BMP2 (bone morphogenetic protein-2) signal through different receptors and transcription factors, namely STATs (signal transducers and activators of transcription) and Smads. LIF and BMP2 were found to act in synergy on primary fetal neural progenitor cells to induce astrocytes. The transcriptional coactivator p300 interacts physically with STAT3 at its amino terminus in a cytokine stimulation-independent manner, and with Smad1 at its carboxyl terminus in a cytokine stimulation-dependent manner. The formation of a complex between STAT3 and Smad1, bridged by p300, is involved in the cooperative signaling of LIF and BMP2 and the subsequent induction of astrocytes from neural progenitors.  (+info)

A functional bone morphogenetic protein system in the ovary. (4/237)

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) comprise a large group of polypeptides in the transforming growth factor beta superfamily with essential physiological functions in morphogenesis and organogenesis in both vertebrates and invertebrates. At present, the role of BMPs in the reproductive system of any species is poorly understood. Here, we have established the existence of a functional BMP system in the ovary, replete with ligand, receptor, and novel cellular functions. In situ hybridization histochemistry identified strong mRNA labeling for BMP-4 and -7 in the theca cells and BMP receptor types IA, IB, and II in the granulosa cells and oocytes of most follicles in ovaries of normal cycling rats. To explore the paracrine function of this BMP system, we examined the effects of recombinant BMP-4 and -7 on FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone)-induced rat granulosa cytodifferentiation in serum-free medium. Both BMP-4 and -7 regulated FSH action in positive and negative ways. Specifically, physiological concentrations of the BMPs enhanced and attenuated the stimulatory action of FSH on estradiol and progesterone production, respectively. These effects were dose- and time-dependent. Furthermore, the BMPs increased granulosa cell sensitivity to FSH. Thus, BMPs have now been identified as molecules that differentially regulate FSH-dependent estradiol and progesterone production in a way that reflects steroidogenesis during the normal estrous cycle. As such, it can be hypothesized that BMPs might be the long-sought "luteinization inhibitor" in Graafian follicles during their growth and development.  (+info)

Characterization of osteoblastic differentiation of stromal cell line ST2 that is induced by ascorbic acid. (5/237)

The stromal cell line ST2, derived from mouse bone marrow, differentiated into osteoblast-like cells in response to ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid induced alkaline phosphatase (ALPase) activity, the expression of mRNAs for proteins that are markers of osteoblastic differentiation, the deposition of calcium, and the formation of mineralized nodules by ST2 cells. We investigated the mechanism whereby ascorbic acid induced the differentiation of ST2 cells. Inhibitors of the formation of collagen triple helices completely blocked the effects of ascorbic acid on ST2 cells, an indication that matrix formation by type I collagen is essential for the induction of osteoblastic differentiation of ST2 cells by ascorbic acid. We furthermore examined the effects of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) on the differentiation of ST2 cells induced by ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid had no effect on the expression of mRNAs for BMP-4 and the BMP receptors. However, a soluble form of BMP receptor IA inhibited the induction of ALPase activity by ascorbic acid. These results suggest that ascorbic acid might promote the differentiation of ST2 cells into osteoblast-like cells by inducing the formation of a matrix of type I collagen, with subsequent activation of the signaling pathways that involve BMPs.  (+info)

A role for the homeobox gene Xvex-1 as part of the BMP-4 ventral signaling pathway. (6/237)

BMP-4 is believed to play a central role in the patterning of the mesoderm by providing a strong ventral signal. As part of this ventral patterning signal, BMP-4 has to activate a number of transcription factors to fulfill this role. Among the transcription factors regulated by BMP-4 are the Xvent and the GATA genes. A novel homeobox gene has been isolated termed Xvex-1 which represents a new class of homeobox genes. Transcription of Xvex-1 initiates soon after the midblastula transition. Xvex-1 transcripts undergo spatial restriction from the onset of gastrulation to the ventral marginal zone, and the transcripts will remain in this localization including at the tailbud stage in the proctodeum. Expression of Xvex-1 during gastrula stages requires normal BMP-4 activity as evidenced from the injection of BMP-4, Smad1, Smad5 and Smad6 mRNA and antisense BMP-4 RNA. Xvex-1 overexpression ventralizes the Xenopus embryo in a dose dependent manner. Partial loss of Xvex-1 activity induced by antisense RNA injection results in the dorsalization of embryos and the induction of secondary axis formation. Xvex-1 can rescue the effects of overexpressing the dominant negative BMP receptor. These results place Xvex-1 downstream of BMP-4 during gastrulation and suggest that it represents a novel homeobox family in Xenopus which is part of the ventral signaling pathway.  (+info)

Self-organization of periodic patterns by dissociated feather mesenchymal cells and the regulation of size, number and spacing of primordia. (7/237)

Periodic patterning is a fundamental organizing process in biology. Using a feather reconstitution assay, we traced back to the initial stage of the patterning process. Cells started from an equivalent state and self-organized into a periodic pattern without previous cues or sequential propagation. When different numbers of dissociated mesenchymal cells were confronted with a piece of same-sized epithelium, the size of feather primordia remained constant, not the number or interbud spacing, suggesting size determination is intrinsic to dissociated cells. Increasing bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) receptor expression in mesenchymal cells decreased the size of primordia while antagonizing the BMP pathway with Noggin increased the size of primordia. A threshold number of mesenchymal cells with a basal level of adhesion molecules such as NCAM were sufficient to trigger the patterning process. The process is best visualized by the progressive restriction of beta-catenin transcripts in the epidermis. Therefore, feather size, number and spacing are modulated through the available morphogen ligands and receptors in the system.  (+info)

Involvement of the small GTPases XRhoA and XRnd1 in cell adhesion and head formation in early Xenopus development. (8/237)

The Rho family of small GTPases regulates a variety of cellular functions, including the dynamics of the actin cytoskeleton, cell adhesion, transcription, cell growth and membrane trafficking. We have isolated the first Xenopus homologs of the Rho-like GTPases RhoA and Rnd1 and examined their potential roles in early Xenopus development. We found that Xenopus Rnd1 (XRnd1) is expressed in tissues undergoing extensive morphogenetic changes, such as marginal zone cells involuting through the blastopore, somitogenic mesoderm during somite formation and neural crest cells. XRnd1 also causes a severe loss of cell adhesion in overexpression experiments. These data and the expression pattern suggest that XRnd1 regulates morphogenetic movements by modulating cell adhesion in early embryos. Xenopus RhoA (XRhoA) is a potential XRnd1 antagonist, since overexpression of XRhoA increases cell adhesion in the embryo and reverses the disruption of cell adhesion caused by XRnd1. In addition to the potential roles of XRnd1 and XRhoA in the regulation of cell adhesion, we find a role for XRhoA in axis formation. When coinjected with dominant-negative BMP receptor (tBR) in the ventral side of the embryo, XRhoA causes the formation of head structures resembling the phenotype seen after coinjection of wnt inhibitors with dominant-negative BMP receptor. Since dominant-negative XRhoA is able to reduce the formation of head structures, we propose that XRhoA activity is essential for head formation. Thus, XRhoA may have a dual role in the embryo by regulating cell adhesion properties and pattern formation.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the presence of cells of an early mesenchymal lineage, as judged by the expression of bone morphogenetic protein receptors (BMPRs), in the joints of normal individuals and patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Synovial fluids, single cell suspensions of cultured fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS), and synovial tissues were examined by immunohistology with antibodies to BMPR type IA (BMPRIA), BMPRIB, and BMPRII and then quantified using computerized image analysis. Other antibodies were evaluated by cytofluorography. RESULTS: In primary cultures of joint effusions from patients with RA and other forms of inflammatory arthritis, there were large adherent cells with the appearance of either fibroblasts or stromal cells that stained with antibodies to mesenchymal elements-CD44, type I collagen, alpha-actin, and vimentin-but not with antibodies to hematopoietic markers. These cells proliferated rapidly, expressed BMPRIA and BMPRII, and soon became the predominant cells in
The bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) receptors are a family of transmembrane serine/threonine kinases that include the type I receptors BMPR1A and BMPR1B and the type II receptor BMPR2. These receptors are also closely related to the activin receptors, ACVR1 and ACVR2. The ligands of these receptors are members of the TGF-beta superfamily. TGF-betas and activins transduce their signals through the formation of heteromeric complexes with 2 different types of serine (threonine) kinase receptors: type I receptors of about 50-55 kD and type II receptors of about 70-80 kD. Type II receptors bind ligands in the absence of type I receptors, but they require their respective type I receptors for signaling, whereas type I receptors require their respective type II receptors for ligand binding ...
A correctly functioning nervous system requires that neural circuits be precisely wired during development. A growing axon must travel through a constantly changing environment, bypassing inappropriate targets to make the correct synapse. To accomplish this feat, axons are directed along the proper path by attractive and repellent cues in the embryonic environment. In addition to directional information, it is critical that axons receive such guidance input at the appropriate time to correctly advance. ❧ Morphogens, signaling molecules that specify cell identity, have been found to also act as axon guidance cues, raising the possibility that the mechanisms that establish neural cell fate are also utilized to assemble neuronal circuits. In the embryonic vertebrate spinal cord, Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMPs) initially induce the identity of dorsal interneuron type 1 (dI1) commissural neurons, then subsequently repel their axons - two biologically distinct processes. Specification of cell ...

Here, we have investigated consequences of constitutively active (ca) and dominant negative (dn) type I receptor overexpression in adult-derived hippocampal progenitor cells (AHPs). The dn receptors have a nonfunctional intracellular but functional extracellular domain. They thus trap BMPs that ...
In the present study, we found that (1) the protein expression of BMPR2 is modulated by the miR-17/92 cluster without affecting the BMPR2 mRNA levels; (2) this regulatory effect is driven by 2 distinct miRNAs, ie, miR-17-5 and miR-20a, through conserved seed matches within the 3′UTR of BMPR2; and (3) IL-6 regulates the expression of the miR-17/92 in HPAEC by signaling through STAT3. Moreover, we could show that (4) the promoter region of C13orf25 exhibits an evolutionary conserved STAT3-binding site and, finally, that (5) persistent activation of STAT3 leads to a strong upregulation of mature miR-20a, which, in turn, reduces the expression of BMPR2 protein. Taken together, our findings offer a novel mechanistic explanation for the downregulation of BMPR2, which has been repeatedly described as important feature in the pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension.. The cell surface receptor BMPR2 is essential for the modulation of differentiation, proliferation and the fibrous matrix production of ...
Introduction: Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare and fatal disease caused by excessive remodelling of small pulmonary arterioles. Heterozygous loss-of-function mutations in the bone morphogenetic protein receptor 2 (BMPR2) have recently been implicated in patients with familial and idiopathic PAH. However, how mutations in this ubiquitously expressed receptor result in a specific abnormality of the lung microcirculation is unknown. We hypothesized that mutations in BMPR2 lead to PAH by increasing the susceptibility of ECs to apoptosis, particularly within fragile pulmonary arterioles. Aims: To examine the effect of endothelial targeted overexpression of a BMPR2 deletional mutation on EC apoptosis, pulmonary hemodynamics and arteriolar remodelling.. Methods: We developed an endothelial-specific binary transgenic (BT) mouse model in which the driver mice express the tetracycline transactivator under the control of the endothelial-restricted V-cadherin promoter and the responder mice ...
DescriptionDevelopment is controlled by a surprisingly small number of genetic pathways. One such pathway is called the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) pathway, similar from flies to humans. We used the common fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, to study the BMP pathway during Drosophila oogenesis, the formation of the egg. While the pathway is relatively simple, there exist combinations between the three different ligands, and four different receptors. My work focused largely on the two type II receptor, specifically on Wishful thinking (WIT). Much is known about the dynamic expression of the type I receptor during oogenesis, Thickveins. However, the pathway requires action of both type I and type II receptors. We found that WIT performs a necessary role during oogenesis and is regulated, indirectly, by BMP signaling. WIT is required for proper patterning of pathway target genes and necessary for proper formation of the eggshell. We also used a new technology, CRISPR/Cas9, to specifically ...

Significant progress in the knowledge about the role of TGF-β in the response to pressure overload has been achieved by studies in left heart failure. Although it is known that TGF-β is associated with maladaptive hypertrophy, inflammation, and fibrosis in various models and diseases, the study of Koitabashi et al was the first to show that TGF-β plays a central role in the cardiac maladaptive response to pressure overload.32-36 However, because the LV has a different embryological origin and the amount of pressure overload in right and left heart failure is not comparable, these results cannot be directly extrapolated.37,38. Until recently, little was known about the effects of BMPR2 mutations on RV adaptation in PAH. First, Megalou et al39 showed the importance of TGF-β in the hypertrophic response in the myocardium of pulmonary hypertensive monocrotaline rats, and, more recently, Hemnes et al24 demonstrated impaired hypertrophy attributable to an altered cardiac energy metabolism in the ...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) consists of a group of vascular abnormalities with elevated pulmonary arterial pressure and pulmonary vascular resistance. Idiopathic or familial PAH is progressive over several years and believed to be fatal without treatment. (1-2) The results of the Endothelin Antagonist tRial in mildly symptomatic PAH (EARLY) indicate that early diagnosis and treatment of PAH might improve time to clinical worsening and emphasize that PAH needs to be diagnosed and treated in the early stages. (3) Germline mutations of bone morphogenetic protein receptor (BMPR)-2, a member of the transforming growth factor (TGF)-β superfamily, have been found in familial and sporadic forms of idiopathic PAH,(4-6) and in appetite-suppressant PAH.(7) The BMPR-2 gene, on chromosome 2q33, has 13 exons. Exons 1-3 encode an extracellular domain, exon 4 encodes the transmembrane domain, exons 5-11 a serine/threonine kinase domain, and exons 12 and 13 a very large intracellular C-terminus of ...
The major observation of this study is that Myo10 is critically important in a filopodial sensor mechanism that mediates BMP6-guided endothelial cell migration and angiogenesis. Specifically, BMP6 potently induces Myo10 expression, and Myo10, in turn, is required for filopodial formation, cell alignment, directed migration, and tube formation induced by BMP6. Additionally, Myo10 associates with the BMP6 receptor ALK6 and modulates BMP6-dependent endothelial activation by regulating the phosphorylation of Smads, the direct downstream transcriptional targets of the BMP receptors. These experiments extend the previous observation that Myo10 induces nondirectional filopodial formation (Bohil et al., 2006) and indicate that Myo10 serves as a critical integration node in growth factor signaling to facilitate directional probing of the local cellular environment as well as further amplification of growth factor signaling that is relevant to the pathophysiologically critical process of ...

Mutations in bone morphogenetic protein receptor 2 (BMPR2) are present in ,80% of familial and ~20% of sporadic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) patients. Furthermore dysfunctional BMP signaling is a general feature of pulmonary hypertension even in non-familial PAH.. We therefore hypothesized that increasing BMP signaling might prevent and reverse the disease. We screened , 3500 FDA approved drugs for their propensity to increase BMP signaling and found FK506 (Tacrolimus) to be a strong activator of BMP signaling. Tacrolimus restored normal function of pulmonary artery endothelial cells, prevented and reversed experimental PAH in mice and rats.. Given that Tacrolimus is already FDA approved with a known side-effect profile, it is an ideal candidate drug to use in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.. The aims of our trial are:. ...

Bone morphogenetic protein 5 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the BMP5 gene.[1][2][3] The protein encoded by this gene is member of the TGFβ superfamily. Bone morphogenetic proteins are known for their ability to induce bone and cartilage development. BMP5 may play a role in certain cancers. Like other BMPs BMP5 is inhibited by chordin and noggin. It is expressed in the trabecular meshwork and optic nerve head and may have a role in the development and normal function. It is also expressed in the lung and liver. This gene encodes a member of the bone morphogenetic protein family which is part of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily. The superfamily includes large families of growth and differentiation factors. Bone morphogenetic proteins were originally identified by an ability of demineralized bone extract to induce endochondral osteogenesis in vivo in an extraskeletal site. These proteins are synthesized as prepropeptides, cleaved, and then processed into dimeric ...

Cytokines of the TGFβ superfamily, including BMPs, signal through a complex of type I and type II transmembrane receptors at the plasma membrane (Figure 1A). There are four different type I and three type II receptors for BMPs. Both types of receptor contain a disulphide-bonded extracellular domain that binds the BMP ligand, a transmembrane region, a juxtamembrane region and a kinase domain. The type I receptor also contains a glycine and serine-rich region (GS-box) adjacent to its kinase domain. In addition, one splice-form of the BMP type II receptor (BMPRII) has a large C-terminal extension comprising 508 amino acids after the kinase domain. This tail region is known to be functionally important and mediates interactions with a plethora of intracellular proteins. To date, its structure has not yet been solved.. BMPs and TGFβs are active as covalent dimers, and bind to heterotetrameric complexes of type I and type II receptors (Fig. 1B). However, they have distinct modes of binding. While ...

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiopulmonary disorder with significant morbidity and mortality in patients with various lung and heart diseases. PAH is characterized by vascular obstruction which leads to a sustained increased pulmonary vascular resistance, vascular remodeling, and right ventricular hypertrophy and failure. Limited PAH therapies indicate that novel approaches are urgently needed for the treatment of PAH. Nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) has been shown to play an important role in different cardiac pathologies; however, the role of NF-κB remains limited in the setting of PAH. Here, we investigated whether NF-κB inhibition in the lungs using Club (Clara) cell-10 promoter driving IκBα mutant had any effect in monocrotaline (MCT)-induced PAH mouse model. Our data revealed that MCT-induced PAH and right ventricular hypertrophy were associated with NF-κB activation, inflammatory response, and altered expression of bone morphogenetic protein receptor 2, ...

The importance of morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) and their antagonists in vascular development is increasingly being recognized. BMP-4 is essential for angiogenesis and is antagonized by matrix Gla protein (MGP) and crossveinless 2 (CV2), both induced in a staged fashion by the activin-like kinase receptor 1 (ALK1) after stimulation by BMP-9. In this study, however, we show that CV2 preferentially binds and inhibits BMP-9 thereby providing strong feedback inhibition for BMP-9/ALK1 signaling rather than for BMP-4/ALK2 signaling. CV2 disrupts complex formation by ALK2, ALK1, BMP-4 and BMP-9 required for the induction of both BMP antagonists. It also limits VEGF expression and proliferation of ALK1-expressing endothelial cells. In vivo, CV2 deficiency translates into a dysregulation of vascular BMP signaling, resulting in a thickened, abnormal endothelium with increased markers of endothelial differentiation. Thus, mutual regulation by BMP-9 and CV2 is essential in regulating the development of the ...

The hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSP) are a group of inherited neurological disorders characterized by a length-dependent axonopathy of the corticospinal tract causing progressive lower extremity weakness and spasticity. How mutations in these gene products result in disease pathogenesis is not entirely known. Some of the HSP related genes, including SPG6 (NIPA1), SPG4 ( Spastin) and SPG20 (Spartin) have been implicated in the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling pathway. BMP signaling is crucial for neuronal development and axonal function. Thus, this pathway is an attractive candidate for HSP pathogenesis. We investigated the reported inhibitory role of Spartin in the BMP pathway and its effects on BMP receptor trafficking based on its known interaction with IST1, a subunit of the Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport complex. The availability of a SPG20 -/- mouse model provided us the opportunity to study neurons and observe phenotypic differences at the cellular level. In ...

Aim: Effective treatment of premature infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is lacking.

Therefore, we investigated the cardiopulmonary effects of BMP9 in neonatal Wistar rats with hyperoxia-induced BPD. Methods: Directly after birth Wistar rat pups were exposed to 100% oxygen for 10 days. From day 2 rat pups received BMP9 (2.5 µg/kg, twice a day) or 0.9% NaCl by subcutaneous injection. Beneficial effects of BMP9 on aberrant alveolar development, lung inflammation and fibrosis, and right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) were investigated by morphometric analysis and cytokine production. In addition, differential mRNA expression of BMP9 and its receptor complex: ALK1, BMPR2 and Endoglin, and of the ALK1 downstream target transmembrane protein 100 (TMEM100) were studied
OBJECTIVE: To characterize the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) target cells positive for phosphorylated (P-)SMAD1/5, in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) synovium. METHODS: Synovial biopsies were obtained by needle arthroscopy. Anti-P-SMAD1/5 antibodies were used for Western blot (WB) on protein extracts from RA and normal synovium and for immunostaining of synovial biopsy sections. Positive cells were further identified by double staining for CD3, CD20, CD68, CD138, CD90, alpha smooth muscle actin (SMA), endoglin (CD105) and von Willebrand factor (VWF). In sections from early RA patients taken before and under antirheumatic treatment, the degree of inflammation and activation of the BMP pathway were quantified. RESULTS: P-SMAD1/5 protein was detected by WB in RA and to a lesser extent in normal synovium. Different P-SMAD1/5 positive cell populations were identified in RA synovium, mainly in perivascular and sublining cells. P-SMAD1/5 positive perivascular cells were alpha SMA positive and located ...

I try my best to rotate the servo arm, but I cant, and the maximum amp draw is only 2.63A maximum in the test so I believe there is no issue to power it with 10A BEC.. Conclusion:. Over all, this is a really good servo with great specs and well design. KST also said that unlike any other servo, the X20 generates no counter EMF in any working condition as it has the all-new design servo circuit board, so your flybarless system and receiver will not be interfered or have any weird behavior any more.. Just give them a try, and you will love them.. --------- ...
