STAT2 (signal transducer and activator of transcription #2) is a 98kD member of the STAT family of cytoplasmic transcription factors. STAT members generally mediate cytokine, growth factor and hormone receptor signal transduction. STAT2 is associated with type I (a? and b--) interferon signaling. All STATs contain an N-terminal oligomerization domain, a DNA-binding domain, and an SH2-association region. STAT2 is phosphorylated at Y689 by receptor-associated Janus kinases (JAKs) leading to STAT2 dimerization and subsequent translocation to the nucleus to activate gene transcription.
