The signal transducers and activators of transcription (Stat) are effector molecules downstream of cytokine receptors. Ligand occupancy of these receptors results in the tyrosine phosphorylation, dimerization and nuclear translocation of the Stat family of transcription factors and by these means regulate gene expression. Prolactin receptors as members of the cytokine-hematopoietin receptor superfamily, are linked to Stat activation. Sexual stimulation leads to an increase in prolactin… CONTINUE READING
