NODAL receptors signal by phosphorylating SMAD2 and SMAD3 (Bondestam et al. 2001, Kumar et al. 2001, DaCosta Byfield et al. 2004). As in TGF-beta signaling, Smad anchor for receptor activation (SARA) may bind and present SMAD2 and SMAD3 for phosphorylation but this has not yet been demonstrated in NODAL signaling.
