Chemical Transforming Growth Factor beta3

Name Transforming Growth Factor beta3
Equivalent Terms Latency-Associated Protein, TGF-beta3 | TGFB3 | TGF beta3 | TGF beta 3 | TGF-beta3 | TGF-beta-3 | TGF-beta3LAP | TGF beta3 Latency Associated Protein | TGF-beta3 Latency-Associated Protein | Transforming Growth Factor beta 3 Latency Associated Peptide
Definition A TGF-beta subtype that plays role in regulating epithelial-mesenchymal interaction during embryonic development. It is synthesized as a precursor molecule that is cleaved to form mature TGF-beta3 and TGF-beta3 latency-associated peptide. The association of the cleavage products results in the formation a latent protein which must be activated to bind its receptor.
