Transforming growth factor, beta receptor II (70/80kDa) is a TGF beta receptor. TGFBR2 is its human gene.

It is a tumor suppressor gene. [1]

This gene encodes a member of the Ser/Thr protein kinase family and the TGFB receptor subfamily. The encoded protein is a transmembrane protein that has a protein kinase domain, forms a heterodimeric complex with another receptor protein, and binds TGF-beta. This receptor/ligand complex phosphorylates proteins, which then enter the nucleus and regulate the transcription of a subset of genes related to cell proliferation. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Marfan syndrome, Loeys-Deitz aortic aneurysm syndrome, Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome, and the development of various types of tumors. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been characterized.[2]


TGF beta receptor 2 has been shown to interact with Cyclin B2,[3] TGF beta receptor 1,[4][5] Transforming growth factor, beta 3,[6][7][8][9] AP2B1,[10] Endoglin,[11][8] Heat shock protein 90kDa alpha (cytosolic), member A1[12] and STRAP.[13][14]
