SMADs are members of the MAD-related family of molecules. MAD-related proteins are a family of intracellular proteins that are essential components in the signaling pathways of the serine/threonine kinase receptors of the transforming growth factor beta superfamily. SMADs can be divided into receptor-regulated SMADs (R-SMADs: SMAD1, 2, 3. 5 and 8), common-mediator SMAD (co-SMAD: SMAD4), and inhibitory SMADs (I-SMADs: SMAD6 and 7). Briefly, activated type I receptors associate with specific R-Smads and phosphorylate them on a conserved SSXS motif at the carboxy-terminus of the proteins. The phosphorylated R-Smad dissociates from the receptor and forms a heteromeric complex with the co-Smad, Smad4, and together the complex moves to the nucleus. Once in the nucleus, Smads can target a variety of DNA binding proteins to regulate transcriptional responses.

Western blot analysis of SMAD6 in human Jurkat cells. The blot was probed with rabbit polyclonal SMAD6 antibody (SP4881) at 1:250.

This antibody was developed against synthetic peptides corresponding to amino acids 85-99 (RAGGPPRPMSEPGAG) and amino acids 372-388 (NLEQRSESVRRTRSKIG) of human SMAD6 (GenBank Accession No. AAH12986.1). These peptide sequences are specific to SMAD6, and have high homology to SMAD6 in multiple species.
