SMAD9 Transcriptional modulator activated by BMP (bone morphogenetic proteins) type 1 receptor kinase. SMAD9 is a receptor-regulated SMAD (R-SMAD). Belongs to the dwarfin/SMAD family. Expressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, prostate, testis, ovary and small intestine. Also expressed in fetal brain, lung and kidney. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
