Transforming Growth Factor beta (TGFβ) cytokine plays an important role in normal pulmonary morphogenesis and function as well as in the pathogenesis of lung diseases.

Abstract

Transforming Growth Factor beta (TGFβ) cytokine plays an important role in normal pulmonary morphogenesis and function as well as in the pathogenesis of lung diseases. The principal signaling pathway downstream to activate TGFβ is the Smad pathway. Even though many studies have focused on Smads’ structural features and pathway, less is known about the possible relationship between protein and mRNA expression of Smads and lung diseases. This review will focus on Smads and sum up what is know about their role in some respiratory diseases: COPD,asthma end fibrosis
