TGFβ1 signaling via αVβ6 integrin


Transforming growth factor β1 (TGFβ1) is a potent inhibitor of epithelial cell growth, thus playing an important role in tissue homeostasis. Most carcinoma cells exhibit a reduced sensitivity for TGFβ1 mediated growth inhibition, suggesting TGFβ1 participation in the development of these cancers. The tumor suppresor gene DPC4/SMAD4, which is frequently… (More)
