Tgfbr1 is also called activin receptor-like kinase receptor ( Alk5
protein is strongly expressed in perichondrial progenitor cells for osteoblasts and in a thin chondrocyte layer located adjacent to the perichondrium in the peripheral cartilage. Conditional knockout of the TGF-[sz] type I receptor Alk5
in skeletal progenitor cells resulted in growth plates that had an abnormally thin perichondrial cell layer, as well as reduced proliferation and differentiation of osteoblasts.
Signaling through Tgf-beta type I receptor Alk5
is required for upper lip fusion.
TGF-[beta] does its biological activities through serine/threonine kinase cell surface receptors, namely TGF-[beta] type II receptor (T[beta]RII) and TGF-[beta] type I receptor (T[beta]RI), also known as activin-like kinase 5 (AlK5
), and affects the regulation of target genes via Smad transcription factors.
Moreover, the 1, 2, 4, 5 tetrasubstituted imidazole derivatives are strong inhibitors of thromboxane A2 synthase and also hold back against p38 MAP kinase, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and (TGF-b1) type 1 activin receptor like kinase (ALK5
) (Nikalje et al., 2015).

Once activated, TGF-[beta] binds to the serine-threonine kinase receptor TGF-[beta] receptor II (T[beta]RII) which phosphorylates TGF-[beta] receptor I (ALK5

To further explore the effects of ginsenoside Rg1 on the regulation TGF-[beta]1/Smad pathway, we investigated the effect of ginsenoside Rg1 on EMT using SB525334, a specific inhibitor of activin receptor-like kinase 5 (ALK5
), which could block the activation of Smad2/3.
