A nuclear protein tyrosine phosphatase is required for the inactivation of Stat1.


The Stat1 activation-inactivation cycle involves phosphorylation of Stat1 in the cytoplasm, translocation to the nucleus, and then a return of the protein to the cytoplasm in a dephosphorylated state. However, the intracellular site of Stat1 dephosphorylation has not been determined. As receptor signaling declines, the flow of activated Stat1 molecules… (More)
