STAT4 is a member of the STAT family of transcription factors. In response to cytokines and growth factors, STAT family members are phosphorylated by the receptor associated kinases, and then form homo- or heterodimers that translocate to the cell nucleus where they act as transcription activators. STAT4 is essential for mediating responses to IL12 in lymphocytes, and regulating the differentiation of T helper cells.
