Literature associating SMAD6 and thoracic aortic aneurysm
Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 6; Acts as a mediator of TGF-beta and BMP antiflammatory activity. Suppresses IL1R-TLR signaling through its direct interaction with PEL1, preventing NF-kappa-B activation, nuclear transport and NF-kappa-B-mediated expression of proinflammatory genes. May block the BMP-SMAD1 signaling pathway by competing with SMAD4 for receptor-activated SMAD1-binding. Binds to regulatory elements in target promoter regions.
Synonyms: SMAD6, SMAD6p, hSMAD6, H0YK80, H0YM33 ...
