Differentiation-regulated serine phosphorylation of STAT1 promotes GAF activation in macrophages.


Gamma interferon (IFN-gamma), a macrophage-activating cytokine, modulates gene expression through the activity of a transcription factor designated IFN-gamma activation factor (GAF). GAF is formed after phosphorylation on tyrosine and dimerization of the 91-kDa protein STAT1. We have recently reported that differentiation of the promonocytic cell line U937… (More)
