Technical Data
SOCS 1 (Suppressor of Cytokine Signalling 1, Janus kinase (JAK) binding protein, STAT-induced STAT inhibitor, SSI-1)
SOCS (Suppressor of Cytokines Signaling) proteins appear to form part of a classical negative feedback loop that regulates cytokine signal transduction. Transcription of each of the SOCS genes occurs rapidly in vitro and in vivo in response to cytokines, and once produced, the various members of the SOCS family appear to inhibit signaling in different ways.
SOCS 1, also called Janus kinase (JAK) binding protein (JAB), or STAT-induced STAT inhibitor (SSI-1), is an SH2-domain-containing protein. It was shown to interact with all four Jak kinases (Jak1, Jak2, Jak3 and Tyk2) and is induced by and inhibits the signaling action of IL-3, IL-4, IL-6, growth hormone, LIF, prolactin, interferon gamma (IFNg), and erythropoietin (2). It plays an important role in the negative regulation of IFNg signaling and in the differentiation of T cells
(3). SOCS 1 mRNA is highly expressed in the thymus, to a much lower level in the spleen, and not expressed in most other tissues (4). The SOCS 1 protein is primarily expressed in the thymocytes independent of the cytokine and T cell receptor (5). Biochemical characterization as well as gene disruption studies indicate that SOCS 1 is an important negative regulator of the JAK-STAT signal pathway.
