TGF-beta Antibody detects recombinant TGF-β1, TGF-β2, and TGF-β3. The antibody also detects endogenous levels of the TGF-β1 precursor proteins.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with synthetic peptide corresponding to a region in the carboxy terminus of TGF-beta1. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) superfamily members are critical regulators of cell proliferation and differentiation, developmental patterning and morphogenesis, and disease pathogenesis (1-4). TGF-β elicits signaling through three cell surface receptors: type I (RI), type II (RII), and type III (RIII). Type I and type II receptors are serine/threonine kinases that form a heteromeric complex. In response to ligand binding, the type II receptors form a stable complex with the type I receptors allowing phosphorylation and activation of type I receptor kinases (5). The type III receptor, also known as betaglycan, is a transmembrane proteoglycan with a large extracellular domain that binds TGF-β with high affinity but lacks a cytoplasmic signaling domain (6,7). Expression of the type III receptor can regulate TGF-β signaling through presentation of the ligand to the signaling complex. The only known direct TGF-β signaling effectors are the Smad family proteins, which transduce signals from the cell surface directly to the nucleus to regulate target gene transcription (8,9).
There are three TGF-beta family members, designated TGF-β1, TGF-β2, and TGF-β3, which are encoded by distinct genes and are expressed in a tissue specific manner (10). TGF-β proteins are synthesized as precursor proteins that are cleaved and reassembled in association with other proteins to form latent complexes. Activation occurs by proteolytic release of TGF-β monomers, which dimerize to form the mature TGF-β ligands.
