STAT3 protein is a transcription factor expressed in most cell types and is activated by multiple cytokines and growth factors including: IFN-a, IL-10, IL-6, IL-11, IL-12, IL-2, EGF etc. STAT3 binds to DNA as either a homodimer or as a heterodimer with STAT1. STAT3 interacts with the APRE (acute phase response element) & SIE (c-sis inducible element).
STAT3 Inhibitor V, Stattic is a cell-permeable vinyl-sulfone compound that acts as an inhibitor of STAT3 cellular function by targeting the STAT3-SH2 domain and preventing its association with upstream kinases. The effect of Stattic towards STAT family members is temperature-dependent and appears to be highly STAT3-selective at 37 degrees C. Shown to inhibit cellular phosphorylation of STAT3 at Tyr705 with little effect towards STAT1 phosphorylation at Tyr701 (in HepG2 cells) or the phosphorylation of JAK1, JAK2, and c-Src (in MDA-MB-231 and MDA-MB-235S cells).
