DPC4 (also named SMAD4; small mothers against decapentaplegic deleted in pancreatic carcinoma). The family of SMAD molecules comprises essential mediators of transforming growth factor beta (TGF-b) signaling. To date, seven members of this family have been identified, each of which plays a specific and separate role in mediating TGF-beta superfamily gene transcription. At least two different members, Smad2 and Smad4/DPC4, have been implicated in human cancer and appear to have tumor-suppressor functions whose inactivation may play an important role in the histogenesis of pancreatic and colorectal malignancy and possibly other human cancers as well.
