Application Brief 1012: p-STAT3 NanoPro Assay
Application Notes Summary
The Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription (STAT) proteins regulate many aspects of cell growth, survival and differentiation. The transcription factors in this family are activated by Janus Kinase (JAK). Dysregulation of this pathway is frequently observed in primary tumors and leads to increased angiogenesis, enhanced survival of tumors and immunosuppression. STAT3 is constitutively active in overexpressing BCR-ABL K562 myelogenous leukaemia cells. Imatinib (also known as GleeveTM), a BCR-ABL inhibitor, reduces STAT3 phosphorylation in these cells. STAT3 is also part of the Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) signaling cascade as shown in MCF10A cells.
