A Fusion Cytokine Coupling GMCSF to IL9 Induces Heterologous Receptor Clustering and STAT1 Hyperactivation through JAK2 Promiscuity


Cytokine receptors are randomly distributed on the cell surface membrane and are activated upon binding of their extracellular ligands to mediate downstream cellular activities. We hypothesized that pharmaceutical clustering of ligand-bound, activated receptors may lead to heretofore unrealized gain-of-function with therapeutically desirable properties. We… (More)
