Description

Background

This antibody is designed, produced, and validated as part of a collaboration between Rockland and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and is suitable for Cancer, Immunology and Nuclear Signaling research. Smad3 (also known as Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 3, Mothers against DPP homolog 3, Mad3, hMAD-3, JV15-2 or hSMAD3) is a transcriptional modulator activated by TGF-b (transforming growth factor) and activin type I receptor kinase.  These activators exert diverse effects on a wide array of cellular processes.  The Smad proteins mediate much of the signaling responses induced by the TGF-b superfamily.  Briefly, activin type I receptor kinase phosphorylates receptor-activated Smads (R-Smads) at the two extreme serines in the C-terminal SSXS motif; e.g. Smad2 and Smad3 proteins in the TGF-b pathway, or Smad1, Smad5 or Smad8 in the Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMP) pathway.  The phosphorylated R-Smad then translocates into the nucleus, where it regulates transcription of target genes.  Based on microarray and animal model experiments, Smad3 accounts for at least 80% of all TGF-b-mediated responses.

Application Note

This affinity purified antibody has been tested for use in ELISA and western blotting.  Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.  Expect a band approximately 50 kDa in size corresponding to Smad3 protein by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.

Purity/Specificity

This affinity purified antibody is directed against human Smad3 protein. The product was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography.  A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross-reactivity with Smad3 protein from human, mouse and rat based on 100% homology with the immunizing sequence.  Reactivity against homologues from other sources is not known.  Also, the antibody is Smad3 specific, and reactivity to other Smad proteins (specifically Smad1, Smad2, Smad4, and Smad7) is not detected in over-expressed cell lysates (Personal Communication, Kathleen Flanders, CCR-NCI, Bethesda, MD).
