      DescriptionMILLIPLEX MAP TGFβ Signaling Pathway Magnetic Bead 6-Plex - Cell Signaling Multiplex Assay
      OverviewCells respond to their environment in many different ways through intracellular signaling. The TGFβ pathway plays a central role in a number of normal cellular processes including proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, migration, adhesion, immune response and other functions in most cells. Although the TGFβ pathway regulates a wide range of processes, the pathway is fairly simple. TGFβ dimers bind to TGFβ Type II Receptor which recruits and phosphorylates TGFβ Type I Receptor. The Type I Receptor then recruits and phosphorylates SMAD2/3, which then binds to SMAD4 and forms a complex that enters the cell nucleus where it acts as a transcription factor for various genes. TGFβ Receptor activates the SMAD-dependent canonical pathway, as well as SMAD-independent non-canonical pathways, such as PI3K/Akt, ERK, JNK, and p38.

      Aberrant TGFβ signaling is involved in the development of multiple diseases, including hematological malignancies such as leukemia, and impaired wound healing, neurodegenerative diseases, developmental disorders and pulmonary hypertension. Loss-of-function mutations promote tumorigenesis by suppressing the immune system and the epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT), although TGFβ signaling has also been implicated in tumor inhibition. Immune cells such as B cells, T cells, dendritic cells and macrophages secrete TGFβ, which downregulates their proliferation, differentiation and activation by other cytokines. Consequently, modifications in TGFβ signaling have been linked to autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and cancer.
