Two highly related, but distinct STAT5 genes (STAT5a and STAT5b) were identified in mice. The aa sequences of Stat5a and Stat5b show approximately 96% sequence similarity, and both proteins are co-expressed in most tissues of both virgin and lactating mice. However, differential accumulation of STAT5a and STAT5b in mRNA has been reported for both muscle and mammary tissue. STAT5 has been shown to be the essential mediator of prolactin induced milk protein gene activation. This antibody detects Stat5 a/b.
