Abstract

The data presented shows that IL-1beta has a biphasic effect on PTC TGF-beta signalling, with early NF-kappaB-mediated inhibition and delayed sensitization via an autocrine IL-6 loop, and possibly also via an autocrine IL-6 loop, and possibly also via a switch from NF Kappa B p52/p50 heterodimer to p50/p50 homodimer formation. Secondly, the data indicates that BMP-7 prevents TGF-beta1-mediated loss of the transcriptional repressor SnoN and hence specifically limits Smad3 DNA binding, altering the balance of transcriptional responses to TGF-beta1 in PTC
