Abstract

The complexity of the signaling network that is initiated by members of the transforming growth factor–β (TGF-β) superfamily continues to increase. In addition, Smads, which were originally identified as key transducers of TGF-β signals, are beginning to emerge as players in other TGF-β–independent processes. Perspectives in this issue, as well as highlights from a recent meeting on TGF-β and select resources from the Archives, spotlight this emerging complexity.
