Requirement of STAT3 activation for maximal collagenase-1 (MMP-1) induction by epidermal growth factor and malignant characteristics in T24 bladder cancer cells


Signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs) are latent transcription factors that mediate cytokine- and growth factor-induced transcription. Constitutive activation of STAT3 has been shown in human cancers and transformed cell lines. We report that STAT3, but not STAT1 and STAT5, becomes phosphorylated in response to epidermal growth factor… (More)
