Previous Symbols for SMAD9 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the SMAD family, which transduces signals from TGF-beta family members. The encoded protein is activated by bone morphogenetic proteins and interacts with SMAD4. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]
GeneCards Summary for SMAD9 Gene
SMAD9 (SMAD Family Member 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SMAD9 include pulmonary hypertension, primary, 2 and smad9-related heritable pulmonary arterial hypertension. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and transforming growth factor beta receptor, pathway-specific cytoplasmic mediator activity. An important paralog of this gene is SMAD1.
