TGF-beta-signaling with small molecule FKBP12 antagonists that bind myristoylated FKBP12-TGF-beta type I receptor fusion proteins.

TLDR
Fusing FKBP12 to TGF-betaRI results in a novel receptor that is activated by small molecule FK BP12 antagonists, and suggests that FkBP12 plays a role in inhibiting T GF-beta superfamily signals.

Different Domains Regulate Homomeric and Heteromeric Complex Formation among Type I and Type II Transforming Growth Factor-β Receptors*

TLDR
It is suggested that the different forms of receptor oligomerization may serve as a basis for the heterogeneity of TGF-β signaling responses.

Silencing of TGF-β signalling by the pseudoreceptor BAMBI

TLDR
The results indicate that BAMBI negatively regulates TGF-β-family signalling by a regulatory mechanism involving the interaction of signalling receptors with a pseudoreceptor and prevents the formation of receptor complexes.

Peptide ligands that use a novel binding site to target both TGF-β receptors.

TLDR
These results indicate that both TβRI and TβRII possess hot spots for protein-protein interactions that are distinct from those used by their known ligand TGF-β.

Oligomeric interactions of TGF‐β and BMP receptors

TGF‐β signalling is mediated by two autonomously functioning TβRI:TβRII pairs

TLDR
Results provide evidence that the two TβRI:TβRII heterodimers bind and signal in an autonomous manner and underscore how the TGF‐βs diverged from the bone morphogenetic proteins, the ancestral ligands of the T GF‐β superfamily that signal through a RI:RII: RII heterotrimer.

Ligand-induced dimerization of the extracellular domain of the TGF-beta receptor type II.

TLDR
The results suggested that ligand dependent receptor dimerization may be an important early step in the TGF-beta signaling complex formation.

Homomeric interactions between type II transforming growth factor-beta receptors.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the type II receptors can form a homomeric complex even in the absence of their ligand, TGF-beta, and this results suggest a novel mechanism of complex formation and receptor activation of the serine/threonine kinase receptor family.

The soluble exoplasmic domain of the type II transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta receptor. A heterogeneously glycosylated protein with high affinity and selectivity for TGF-beta ligands.

TLDR
This is the first demonstration of the binding affinities of the type II receptor in the absence of the other cell-surface molecules known to bind TGF-beta, and it is shown that the type III receptor or some other component is required for transmission of T GF-beta 2-induced signals by the type I receptor.

Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) signals through a receptor complex containing the type I (TGF-beta RI) and type II (TGF-beta RII) receptors. We describe here biochemical studies on early

The Soluble Exoplasmic Domain of the Type II Transforming Growth Factor (TGF)-β Receptor

TLDR
This is the first demonstration of the binding affinities of the type II receptor in the absence of the other cell-surface molecules known to bind TGF-β, and it is shown that the type III receptor or some other component is required for transmission of T GF-β2-induced signals by the type I receptor.

Signaling Activity of Homologous and Heterologous Transforming Growth Factor-β Receptor Kinase Complexes (*)

TLDR
Results suggest that TGF-β mediates transcriptional and antiproliferative responses through the heteromeric T βR-I•TβR-II complex and not through homo-oligomers TβR -I or Tβr-II complexes.

Ligand-independent Activation of Transforming Growth Factor (TGF) β Signaling Pathways by Heteromeric Cytoplasmic Domains of TGF-β Receptors*

TLDR
The results indicate that the cytoplasmic domains of the type I and type II TGF-β receptors physically and functionally interact with each other in the heteromeric complex.

Disruption of transforming growth factor beta signaling by a mutation that prevents transphosphorylation within the receptor complex.

TLDR
The results suggest that T beta R-II(P525L) is a catalytically active receptor that cannot recognize T Beta R-I as a substrate, and argues that transphosphorylation is essential for signal propagation via T betaR-I.

Processing of the Transforming Growth Factor β Type I and II Receptors

TLDR
Results show differential processing and turnover of TGFβ-IR and T GFβ-IIR providing a potential additional mechanism for modulation of cellular responses to TGF βs.
