TGFβR1 is a transmembrane serine/threonine protein kinase and a member of the TGFβ receptor subfamily (1). TGFβ regulates cell cycle progression by a unique signaling mechanism that involves its binding to TGFβR2 and activation of TGFβR1. TGFβR1 may be inactivated in many of the cases of human tumor cells refractory to TGFβ-mediated cell cycle arrest. Heterozygous mutations in TGFβR1 and TGFβR2 have been reported in Loeys-Dietz aortic aneurysm syndrome (LDS) and also dominant TGFβR2 mutations have been identified in Marfan syndrome type 2 (MFS2) and familial thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (TAAD). Mutations of TGFβR1 and TGFβR2 are associated with atherosclerosis and several human cancers (2).
