Transforming growth factor beta (TGFbeta)1 induced dephosphorylation of pRb at multiple serine and threonine residues including Ser249/Thr252, Thr373, Ser780, and Ser807/811 in MV4-11 cells. Likewise, TGFbeta1 caused the dephosphorylation of p130, while inhibiting accumulation of p107 protein. Phosphorylated pRb was detected to bind E2F-1 and E2F-3, which appears to be a major form of pRb complexes in actively cycling cells. TGFbeta1 significantly downregulated pRb-E2F-1 and pRb-E2F-3 complexes… CONTINUE READING
