Description:
SMAD6 is a member of the SMAD family of proteins, which negatively regulate the transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) signalling pathway. SMAD6 preferentially inhibits the TGFβ/bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) receptors and interferes with the formation of receptor-activated SMAD complexes. There are two known isoforms of this protein. Polymorphisms in the SMAD6 gene associated with HbF levels in African American sickle cell patients.
