|Function||Receptor-regulated SMAD (R-SMAD) that is an intracellular signal transducer and transcriptional modulator activated by TGF-beta (transforming growth factor) and activin type 1 receptor kinases. Binds the TRE element in the promoter region of many genes that are regulated by TGF-beta and, on formation of the SMAD3/SMAD4 complex, activates transcription. Also can form a SMAD3/SMAD4/JUN/FOS complex at the AP-1/SMAD site to regulate TGF-beta-mediated transcription. Has an inhibitory effect on wound healing probably by modulating both growth and migration of primary keratinocytes and by altering the TGF- mediated chemotaxis of monocytes. This effect on wound healing appears to be hormone-sensitive. Regulator of chondrogenesis and osteogenesis and inhibits early healing of bone fractures. Positively regulates PDPK1 kinase activity by stimulating its dissociation from the 14-3-3 protein YWHAQ which acts as a negative regulator.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Cytoplasmic and nuclear in the absence of TGF-beta. On TGF-beta stimulation, migrates to the nucleus when complexed with SMAD4. Through the action of the phosphatase PPM1A, released from the SMAD2/SMAD4 complex, and exported out of the nucleus by interaction with RANBP1. Co-localizes with LEMD3 at the nucleus inner membrane MAPK-mediated phosphorylation appears to have no effect on nuclear import. PDPK1 prevents its nuclear translocation in response to TGF-beta|

Smad proteins belong to a group of intracellular signal transducers and downstream effectors of TGF-β/BMP Signaling. The family consists of nine members that are highly conserved in the N- and C-terminal regions (1). Smad3 is a key component in intracellular signaling of transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β), an inhibitor for tumor cell proliferation (2). Smad3 is activated by activin/TGF-β receptors, which form a heteromeric complex with Smad4, translocating to the nucleus and regulating the expression of TGF- β target genes. Interaction of Smad3 with Akt, can initiate TGF- β induced apoptosis and cell cycle arrest (3). Smad3 expression may be critical in tumor suppression in early stages of gastric carcinogenesis (4).
