|Protein Name||Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 6|
|Molecular Weight||53497 MW|
|Protein Function||Acts as a mediator of TGF-beta and BMP antiflammatory activity. Suppresses IL1R-TLR signaling through its direct interaction with PEL1, preventing NF-kappa-B activation, nuclear transport and NF-kappa-B-mediated expression of proinflammatory genes. May block the BMP-SMAD1 signaling pathway by competing with SMAD4 for receptor-activated SMAD1-binding. Binds to regulatory elements in target promoter regions. .|
|Tissue Specificity||Ubiquitous in various organs, with higher levels in lung. Isoform B is up-regulated in diseased heart tissue.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the dwarfin/SMAD family.|
|Subcellular Localization||Nucleus .|
|Alternative Names||Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 6;MAD homolog 6;Mothers against DPP homolog 6;SMAD family member 6;SMAD 6;Smad6;hSMAD6;SMAD6;MADH6;|

1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
