Transforming growth factor-b (TGF-b) belongs to a family of dimeric 25 kDa polypeptides that are ubiquitously distributed in tissues and synthesized by many different cells.Three isoforms of transforming Growth Factor-b (TGF-beta1, beta-2 and beta-3) exist in mammals. They play critical roles in growth regulation and development. Each isoform is encoded by a unique gene on different chromosomes. All three of these growth factors are secreted by most cell types, generally in a latent form, requiring activation before they can exert biological activity. The TGF-betas possess three major activities: they inhibit proliferation of most cells, but can stimulate the growth of some mesechymal cells; they exert immunosuppressive effects and they enhance the formation of extracellular matrix. Two types of membrane receptors possessing kinase activity are involved in signal transduction. The TGF-betas are involved in wound repair processes and in starting inflammatory reaction and then in the resolution through chemotactic attraction of inflammatory cells and fibroblast.

TGF-b1 is the first recognized transforming growth factor, its subunits of each 12.5 kDa are bound via disulphide bridges. TGF-b1 is inhibitive to T- and B cell proliferation as well as to maturation and activation of macrophages. It furthermore inhibits activity of natural killer cells and lymphokine activated killer cells and blocks production of cytokines.
