Sequential activation of Rac-1, SEK-1/MKK-4, and protein kinase Cdelta is required for interleukin-6-induced STAT3 Ser-727 phosphorylation and transactivation.


Activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) by interleukin-6 (IL-6) involves phosphorylation of Tyr-705 and Ser-727, both of which are critical for STAT3 transactivation. Here, we demonstrate that IL-6 activates Rac-1 and SEK-1/MKK-4 of the stress-activated protein kinase pathway, as well as protein kinase Cdelta (PKCdelta), as… (More)
