FAMILY
DESCRIPTION
Also known as STAT3_PIG, STAT3. Signal transducer and transcription activator that mediates cellular responses to interleukins, KITLG/SCF, LEP and other growth factors. Once activated, recruits coactivators, such as NCOA1 or MED1, to the promoter region of the target gene. May mediate cellular responses to activated FGFR1, FGFR2, FGFR3 and FGFR4. Binds to the interleukin-6 (IL-6)-responsive elements identified in the promoters of various acute-phase protein genes. Activated by IL31 through IL31RA (By similarity). Acts as a regulator of inflammatory response by regulating differentiation of naive CD4(+) T-cells into T-helper Th17 or regulatory T-cells (Treg): deacetylation and oxidation of lysine residues by LOXL3, leads to disrupt STAT3 dimerization and inhibit its transcription activity (By similarity). Involved in cell cycle regulation by inducing the expression of key genes for the progression from G1 to S phase, such as CCND1 (By similarity). Mediates the effects of LEP on melanocortin production, body energy homeostasis and lactation. May play an apoptotic role by transctivating BIRC5 expression under LEP activation (By similarity). Cytoplasmic STAT3 represses macroautophagy by inhibiting EIF2AK2/PKR activity (By similarity). Plays a crucial role in basal beta cell functions, such as regulation of insulin secretion. Plays an important role in host defense in methicillin-resistant S.aureus lung infection by regulating the expression of the antimicrobial lectin REG3G (By similarity). Interacts with ZDHHC19, leading to palmitoylation which promotes homodimerization and activation (By similarity). Forms a homodimer or a heterodimer with a related family member (at least STAT1). Interacts with IL31RA, NCOA1, PELP1, SIPAR, SOCS7, STATIP1 and TMF1. Interacts with IL23R in presence of IL23. Interacts (via SH2 domain) with NLK. Interacts with ARL2BP; the interaction is enhanced by LIF and JAK1 expression (By similarity). Interacts with KPNA4 and KPNA5; KPNA4 may be the primary mediator of nuclear import (By similarity). Interacts with CAV2; the interaction is increased on insulin-induced tyrosine phosphorylation of CAV2 and leads to STAT3 activation (By similarity). Interacts with ARL2BP; interaction is enhanced with ARL2. Interacts with NEK6 (By similarity). Binds to CDK9 when activated and nuclear. Interacts with BMX. Interacts with ZIPK/DAPK3. Interacts with PIAS3; the interaction occurs on stimulation by IL6, CNTF or OSM and inhibits the DNA binding activity of STAT3. In prostate cancer cells, interacts with STAT3 and promotes DNA binding activity of STAT3. Interacts with STMN3, antagonizing its microtubule-destabilizing activity. Interacts with the 'Lys-129' acetylated form of BIRC5/survivin. Interacts with FER. Interacts (via SH2 domain) with EIF2AK2/PKR (via the kinase catalytic domain) (By similarity). Interacts with FGFR4 (By similarity). Interacts with STAT3; the interaction is independent of STAT3 Tyr-705 phosphorylation status (By similarity). Interacts with OCAD1 (By similarity).
