The pseudokinase domain is required for suppression of basal activity of Jak2 and Jak3 tyrosine kinases and for cytokine-inducible activation of signal transduction.

Abstract

Janus (Jak) tyrosine kinases contain a tyrosine kinase (JH1) domain adjacent to a catalytically inactive pseudokinase domain (JH2). The JH2 domain has been implicated in regulation of Jak activity, but its function remains poorly understood. Here, we found that the JH2 domain negatively regulates the activity of Jak2 and Jak3. Deletion of JH2 resulted in… (More)
