Nuclear Trafficking of STAT Proteins

This chapter discusses molecular mechanisms that are known to regulate STAT cellular localization, and describes the activation and function of JAK and STAT proteins in health and disease.

The JAK / STAT Signaling Pathway

The Janus kinase/signal transducers and activators of transcription (JAK/STAT)pathway is one of a handful of pleiotropic cascades used to transduce a multitude of signals for development and

Basics of Janus kinases: a review

Current researches suggest possible disruption in JAK/STAT pathway in different autoimmune and inflammatory skin diseases.

The JAK/STAT signaling pathway The JAK/STAT Signaling Pathway

A general overview of the JAK/STAT pathway is presented and the primary mechanisms of activation and regulation of this essential signaling cascade are illustrated.

Cross-Regulation of JAK-STAT Signaling: Implications for Approaches to Combat Chronic Inflammatory Diseases and Cancers

How an increased understanding of JAK-STAT pathway architecture, the basis for its dysfunction in pathological states, and its regulation by other intracellular signaling pathways are illuminating multiple strategies to manipulate this pathway in several disease arenas is discussed.

The role of JAK-STAT signaling pathway and its regulators in the fate of T helper cells

This review represents how the JAK-STAT pathway is generally regulated and then in Th cell subsets in more detail and introduces novel targeted strategies as promising therapeutic approaches in the treatment of immune disorders.

Modulation of STAT signaling by STAT-interacting proteins

The roles of STAT-interacting proteins in the regulation of STAT signaling are reviewed, finding a number of proteins function to modulate STAT signaling at various steps and mediate the crosstalk of STATs with other cellular signaling pathways.

Cytokine receptor signalling

Many cell functions are regulated by members of the cytokine receptor superfamily, a family of transcription factors that contribute to the diversity of cytokine responses.

Jaks and STATs: biological implications.

The Jak-STAT pathway is the focus of this chapter, a novel mechanism in which cytosolic latent transcription factors, known as signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs), are tyrosine phosphorylated by Janus family tyrosin kinases (Jaks), allowing STAT protein dimerization and nuclear translocation.

Jak-STAT pathways and transcriptional activation in response to IFNs and other extracellular signaling proteins.

A previously unrecognized direct signal transduction pathway to the nucleus has been uncovered: IFN-receptor interaction at the cell surface leads to the activation of kinases of the Jak family that phosphorylate substrate proteins called STATs (signal transducers and activators of transcription).

The biology of Stat4 and Stat6

This report will summarize and describe the recent advances made in understanding the activation and regulation of Stat6 and Stat4 as well as their roles in the development of an immune response.

STATs in oncogenesis

The evidence for critical roles of STATs in oncogenesis is presented and the potential for development of novel cancer therapies based on mechanistic understanding of STAT signaling is discussed.

Negative regulation of cytokine signaling pathways.

Biochemical characterization as well as gene disruption studies indicate that JAB/SOCS1/SSI-1 is an important negative regulator of interferon gamma signaling.
