Protein Information
Name STAT2
Function Signal transducer and activator of transcription that mediates signaling by type I IFNs (IFN-alpha and IFN-beta). Following type I IFN binding to cell surface receptors, Jak kinases (TYK2 and JAK1) are activated, leading to tyrosine phosphorylation of STAT1 and STAT2. The phosphorylated STATs dimerize, associate with IRF9/ISGF3G to form a complex termed ISGF3 transcription factor, that enters the nucleus. ISGF3 binds to the IFN stimulated response element (ISRE) to activate the transcription of interferon stimulated genes, which drive the cell in an antiviral state.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Translocated into the nucleus upon activation by IFN-alpha/beta

Stat-2 is a latent transcription factor that functions both as a signal transducer in the cytoplasm and an activator of transcription in the nucleus. Stat-2 is one of seven members of the Signal transducer and activators of transcription (Stats) family. Stat-2 is phosphorylated at Tyr690 by JAKs(1-3). Additionally, upon activation, Stat-2 will form a multiprotein DNA-binding complex with Stat-1 and ISGF3γp48 (4). This activation subsequently allows the complex to translocate to the nucleus & bind specific enhancer elements.
