Janus family tyrosine kinases (Jaks) and signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs) are involved in mediating gene expression in response to cytokines and interferons. Jaks associate with cytokine receptors; upon ligand binding, Jaks phosphorylate the receptor. The phosphorylated receptors are bound by SH2-containing proteins, one class of which is the STATs. Activated STATs, then, translocate to the nucleus to mediate gene transcription (1,2). Stat-6 is tyrosine phosphorylated in response to cellular interaction with IL-3 and IL-4 (3,4).
