Scientists report that GSK3008348 bound to αvβ6 with high affinity in human idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis lung and reduced downstream pro-fibrotic TGFβ signaling to normal levels. In human lung epithelial cells, GSK3008348 induced rapid internalization and lysosomal degradation of the αvβ6 integrin.

Scientists used an in vitro pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma model of SMAD4 positive and negative cells to investigate the interplay between circadian rhythms, the TGFβ canonical signaling pathway and its impact on tumor malignancy.
Researchers combined RNA-seq and ATAC-seq to study the impact of sustained transforming growth factor-β receptor inhibition on gene expression and chromatin architecture of endometrial mesenchymal stem cells.

Investigators summarize the current literature on crosstalk mechanisms between biochemical cues elicited by TGFβ/bone morphogenic protein growth factors and mechanical cues, as shear stress or matrix stiffness that collectively orchestrated endothelial function.
Researchers found that the TCF7L2 E-isoforms maintained, whereas the M and S isoforms disrupted morphogenesis of 3D-epithelial cell-derived organoids via regulation of epithelial-mesenchymal transition.
