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 Heritable Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. Among its related pathways are TGF-beta Receptor Signaling (WikiPathways) and TGF-Beta Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and transforming growth factor beta receptor, pathway-specific cytoplasmic mediator activity. An important paralog of this gene is SMAD1.
