TGFβR2 is a member of the TGFβ receptor subfamily and is a ser/thr protein kinase. TGFβR2-induced protein phosphorylation plays a key role in signal transduction that leads to mitogenic responses (1). The TGFβR2 receptor transmits signals from the cell surface to the nucleus and provides instructions for making transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta type II receptor. Mutations in TGFβR2 gene have been associated with Marfan Syndrome, Loeys-Deitz Aortic Aneurysm Syndrome, and the development of various types of tumors (2).
