Western blot analysis of extracts from untreated or TGF-beta treated HeLa and NIH/3T3 cells, using Phospho-Smad2 (Ser465/467) (138D4) Rabbit mAb (upper), or Smad2 Antibody #3102 (lower).
Chromatin immunoprecipitations were performed with cross-linked chromatin from HaCaT cells treated with Human TGF-β3 #8425 (7 ng/ml) for 1 h and either Smad2 (D43B4) XP® Rabbit mAb #5339 or Normal Rabbit IgG #2729 using SimpleChIP® Enzymatic Chromatin IP Kit (Magnetic Beads) #9003. The enriched DNA was quantified by real-time PCR using SimpleChIP® Human CDKN1A Intron 1 Primers #4669, SimpleChIP® Human ID1 Promoter Primers #5139, and SimpleChIP® Human α Satellite Repeat Primers #4486. The amount of immunoprecipitated DNA in each sample is represented as signal relative to the total amount of input chromatin, which is equivalent to one.

Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of NIH/3T3 cells, serum-starved (left) or treated with hTGF-β3 #8425 (right), using Smad2 (D43B4) XP® Rabbit mAb (green). Actin filaments have been labeled with DY-554 phalloidin (red).
Western blot analysis of extracts from various cell lines using Smad2 (D43B4) XP® Rabbit mAb.

These antibodies have been selected from CST's product offering based upon superior performance in specified applications.
Members of the Smad family of signal transduction molecules are components of a critical intracellular pathway that transmit TGF-β signals from the cell surface into the nucleus. Three distinct classes of Smads have been defined: the receptor-regulated Smads (R-Smads), which include Smad1, 2, 3, 5, and 8; the common-mediator Smad (co-Smad), Smad4; and the antagonistic or inhibitory Smads (I-Smads), Smad6 and 7 (1-5). Activated type I receptors associate with specific R-Smads and phosphorylate them on a conserved carboxy terminal SSXS motif. The phosphorylated R-Smad dissociates from the receptor and forms a heteromeric complex with the co-Smad (Smad4), allowing translocation of the complex to the nucleus. Once in the nucleus, Smads can target a variety of DNA binding proteins to regulate transcriptional responses (6-8).
