STAT3 single-nucleotide polymorphisms and STAT3 mutations associated with hyper-IgE syndrome are not responsible for increased serum IgE serum levels in asthma families

Abstract

Mutations in STAT3 (signal transducer and activator of transcription 3) have recently been found to cause the hyper-IgE syndrome (HIES) – a rare immunodeficiency syndrome including complex somatic features. We now tested whether STAT3 mutations or single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within STAT3 may be responsible for increased IgE levels in asthmatic… (More)
