    Distinct modes of SMAD2 chromatin binding and remodeling shape the transcriptional response to NODAL/Activin signaling

    Davide M Coda et al.
    NODAL/Activin-induced SMAD2 binding directly drives remodeling of both open and closed chromatin and does not directly correlate with temporal patterns of gene expression upon prolonged signaling.

    TGF-β uses a novel mode of receptor activation to phosphorylate SMAD1/5 and induce epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition

    Anassuya Ramachandran et al.
    SMAD1/5 signaling is essential for the full transforming growth factor β (TGF-β)-induced transcriptional program and physiological responses and is induced via a novel receptor activation mechanism, involving two distinct type I receptors.

    Two locus inheritance of non-syndromic midline craniosynostosis via rare SMAD6 and common BMP2 alleles

    Andrew T Timberlake et al.
    Epistatic interactions of rare loss of function mutations in SMAD6 and a common variant modifier near BMP2 are the most common cause of midline craniosynostosis in humans.

    Smad4 restricts differentiation to promote expansion of satellite cell derived progenitors during skeletal muscle regeneration

    Nicole D Paris et al.
    Ablation of canonical TGFβ signaling in muscle stem cells at any age is detrimental, and not beneficial, to effective skeletal muscle regeneration due to the promotion of premature fate commitment at the expense of progenitor amplification.

    Structural basis for diguanylate cyclase activation by its binding partner in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Gukui Chen et al.
    The diguanylate cyclase activity of SiaD is activated by its binding partner SiaC thourgh a dynamic mechanism of promoting the formation of active SiaD dimers.

    GAS5 protects against osteoporosis by targeting UPF1/SMAD7 axis in osteoblast differentiation

    Ming Li et al.
    GAS5 is related to osteoporosis by regulating the differentiation of bone marrow stromal cells that acts as a promising treatment target for osteoporosis.

    The testis protein ZNF165 is a SMAD3 cofactor that coordinates oncogenic TGFβ signaling in triple-negative breast cancer

    Zane A Gibbs et al.
    Anomalous expression of the testis protein ZNF165 in cancer cells promotes assembly of a neomorphic transcriptional complex that modulates transcription of TGFβ target genes to support tumor cell survival.

    WNT signaling memory is required for ACTIVIN to function as a morphogen in human gastruloids

    Anna Yoney et al.
    The requirement for WNT signaling in mesendoderm differentiation is temporally separate from that of ACTIVIN signaling and acts to switch the output of ACTIVIN/SMAD2 from pluripotency maintenance to mesendoderm patterning.

    Tissue damage drives co-localization of NF-κB, Smad3, and Nrf2 to direct Rev-erb sensitive wound repair in mouse macrophages

    Dawn Z Eichenfield et al.
    Combinatorial signaling leads to transcription factor co-localization at Rev-erb sensitive enhancers, enabling a diversified cellular response to complex stimuli.

    A low affinity cis-regulatory BMP response element restricts target gene activation to subsets of Drosophila neurons

    Anthony JE Berndt et al.
    DNA motifs tuned for low affinity binding of BMP-induced pMad/Medea transcription factors function to restrict gene activation to small subsets of the many Drosophila neurons that exhibit active BMP signaling.
