Endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition contributes to cardiac fibrosis
Cardiac fibrosis, associated with a decreased extent of microvasculature and with disruption of normal myocardial structures, results from excessive deposition of extracellular matrix, which isExpand

Transforming growth factor type beta: rapid induction of fibrosis and angiogenesis in vivo and stimulation of collagen formation in vitro.
Transforming growth factor type beta (TGF-beta), when injected subcutaneously in newborn mice, causes formation of granulation tissue (induction of angiogenesis and activation of fibroblasts toExpand

Mice lacking Smad3 show accelerated wound healing and an impaired local inflammatory response
The generation of animals lacking SMAD proteins, which transduce signals from transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β), has made it possible to explore the contribution of the SMAD proteins to TGF-βExpand

Smad3 is key to TGF-beta-mediated epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, fibrosis, tumor suppression and metastasis.
Smads2 and 3 transduce signals of TGF-beta from the cell surface to the nucleus. We used mice with a targeted deletion of Smad3 to study the specific contributions of this signaling pathway toExpand

Targeted disruption of TGF-beta1/Smad3 signaling protects against renal tubulointerstitial fibrosis induced by unilateral ureteral obstruction.
Tubulointerstitial fibrosis is the final common result of a variety of progressive injuries leading to chronic renal failure. Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) is reportedly upregulated inExpand

Transforming growth factor beta 1 null mutation in mice causes excessive inflammatory response and early death.
To delineate specific developmental roles of transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) we have disrupted its cognate gene in mouse embryonic stem cells by homologous recombination to generateExpand

Production of transforming growth factor beta by human T lymphocytes and its potential role in the regulation of T cell growth
This study examines the potential role of transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) in the regulation of human T lymphocyte proliferation, and proposes that TGF-beta is an important autoregulatoryExpand

Human transforming growth factor-β complementary DNA sequence and expression in normal and transformed cells
The partial amino-acid sequence of purified human transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) was used to identify a series of cDNA clones encoding the protein. The cDNA sequence indicates that theExpand
