Transforming growth factor-β superfamily ligand trap ACE-536 corrects anemia by promoting late-stage erythropoiesis.

Erythropoietin (EPO) stimulates proliferation of early-stage erythrocyte precursors and is widely used for the treatment of chronic anemia. However, s...

An activin receptor IIA ligand trap corrects ineffective erythropoiesis in β-thalassemia.
The pathophysiology of ineffective erythropoiesis in β-thalassemia is poorly understood. We report that RAP-011, an activin receptor IIA (ActRIIA) ligand trap, improved ineffective erythropoiesis, corrected anemia and limited iron overload in a mouse

A Selective Transforming Growth Factor-β Ligand Trap Attenuates Pulmonary Hypertension.
Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) ligands signal via type I and type II serine-threonine kinase receptors to regulate broad transcriptional programs. Excessive TGF-β-mediated signaling is implicated in the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypert

Stem cells for cardiac regeneration and possible roles of the transforming growth factor-β superfamily.
Abstract Heart failure is a leading cause of death worldwide. Studies of stem cell biology are essential for developing efficient treatments. Recently, we established and characterized c-kit-positive cardiac stem cells from the adult rat heart. Using

Transforming Growth Factor β Superfamily Signaling in Development of Colorectal Cancer.
Transforming growth factor (TGF)-β cytokines signal via a complex network of pathways to regulate proliferation, differentiation, adhesion, migration, and other functions in many cell types. A high percentage of colorectal tumors contain mutations th

Transforming growth factor-β superfamily, implications in development and differentiation of stem cells.
Abstract Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) family members, including TGF-βs and bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), play important roles in directing the fate of stem cells. In embryonic stem cells, the TGF-β superfamily participates in almost all

Induction of ram bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells into germ cell lineage using transforming growth factor-β superfamily growth factors.
Several studies have proposed that in vitro generation of germ cells (GCs) from stem cells can be considered a future option for infertility treatment. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have the capability to differentiate into male GCs with the use of i

Smad signaling in the skin.
Although mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) mediates a wide variety of biological functions, little information is available on the effect of mTOR on the functions of skin cells. In this study, we investigated effects of mTOR inhibition by rapamyci

Modified activin receptor IIB ligand trap mitigates ineffective erythropoiesis and disease complications in murine β-thalassemia.
In β-thalassemia, unequal production of α- and β-globin chains in erythroid precursors causes apoptosis and inhibition of late-stage erythroid differentiation, leading to anemia, ineffective erythropoiesis (IE), and dysregulated iron homeostasis. Her

Transforming growth factor-β1 and diabetic nephropathy.
Transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is established to be involved in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy. The diabetic milieu enhances oxidative stress and induces the expression of TGF-β1. TGF-β1 promotes cell hypertrophy and extracellular m

Transforming growth factor-β1 in plaque morphea.
Morphea (localized scleroderma) is a rare cutaneous disease characterized by skin fibrosis of unknown pathogenesis. Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is a potent profibrotic factor. The role of TGF-β in morphea remains unclear.
