Name :
Human TGFBR2 Protein, ECD (Extracellular Domain), Fc-fusion, Biotinylated, Recombinant

Description :
The TGFβ (transforming growth factor β) superfamily proteins are pleiotropic cytokines that regulate a diverse range of cellular processes, including proliferation, differentiation, migration, adhesion and death. The TGFβ superfamily elicits 4 signaling pathways: TGFβ, Bone Morphogenic Protein (BMP), Activin, and Nodal. Each pathway signals through a heteromeric receptor complex composed of at least two type-I and two type-II transmembrane receptors containing cytoplasmic serine/threonine kinase domains. These receptors are distinguished by the presence of a glycine/serine-rich juxta-membrane domain found only in the type I receptors. Either type receptor may initially bind ligand, followed by the recruitment of an alternate-type receptor counterpart to form a signal-activating complex. TGFBR2 (transforming growth factor β receptor 2), also known as TGFR-2 and TGFβ-RII, is a type II receptor for TGFβ that functions as a tumor suppressor by inhibiting the cell cycle in the G1 phase. TGFBR2 binds TGFβ1, TGFβ3, and TGFβ5 with high affinity, and TGFβ2 with two orders of magnitude lower affinity. TGFBR2 regulates a plethora of physiological and pathological processes, including wound healing, extracellular matrix production, immunosuppression, and tumorigenesis. Mutations in the TGFBR2 gene are associated with Marfan syndrome (MFS), Loeys-Deitz Aortic Aneurysm Syndrome (LDS), thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissection (TAAD), thoracic aortic aneurysms type 3 (AAT3) and cancers, such as hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer 6 (HNPCC6) and esophageal cancer (ESCR).
