The phospho-R-Smad1/5/8:Co-Smad transfers to the nucleus (R-HSA-201472)

Species Homo sapiens


The phosphorylated-r-SMAD1/5/8:Co-SMAD complex rapidly translocates to the nucleus where it binds directly to DNA and interacts with a plethora of transcription co-factors. Regulation of target gene expression can be either positive or negative. A classic example of a target gene of the pathway are the genes encoding for i-SMADs. Thus, BMP2/SMAD signalling induces the expression of the negative regulators of the pathway (a negative feedback loop).
