A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) and insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) play critical roles in the control of myogenesis. Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-5 (IGFBP-5), by regulating the bioavailability of IGFs, is involved in controlling IGF-dependent differentiation. We investigated the effects of TGF-beta on the IGFBP-5 production induced by IGFs in mouse myoblasts. TGF-beta leads to a decrease in IGFBP-5 synthesis at both transcript and protein levels, and blocked muscle differentiation. The Smad proteins and the c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) have been shown to be involved in TGF-beta signaling pathways. We provide evidence that the JNK pathway, rather than Smad proteins, is involved in the response of muscle cells to TGF-beta. This factor failed to stimulate the GAL4-Smad 2/3 transcriptional activities of the constructs used to transfect myoblasts. Moreover, stable expression of the antagonistic Smad7 did not abolish the inhibitory effect of TGF-beta on IGFBP-5 production whereas expression of a dominant-negative version of MKK4, an upstream activator of JNK, did. We also showed, using a specific inhibitor, that the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38 MAPK) was not involved in the inhibition of IGFBP-5 production. Thus, TGF-beta-mediated IGFBP-5 inhibition is independent of Smads and requires activation of the JNK signaling pathway.
