Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified B
STATs (signal transducers and activators of transcription) were originally discovered as two proteins (STAT 1 and 2) involved in IFN-a and IFN-g signal transduction. Since their initial identification, 5 more STAT proteins have been discovered (STAT 3, 4, 5a, 5b and 6). STATs undergo tyrosine phosphorylations in response to growth factor or cytokine signaling (in some cases mediated by JAK kinases [Janus Kinases 1, 2 and 3]), resulting in dimerization and translocation of STAT proteins to the nucleus. Phosphorylation at serine residues in certain STATs (STAT 1a, 3, 4 and 5) has also been reported, and appears to be required for the maximal activation of these proteins. By examining mutants of STAT 2, a major role in the induction of interferon alpha transcription has been described. STAT 2 is also critical to phosphorylation of STAT 1 during this induction.
