Description

Background

STAT2 is a member of the STAT family of transcription factors.  Unlike other STATs, STAT2 is unique as it can only be activated by interferons (IFNs). STAT2 is a critical component in mediating many IFN-stimulated biological activities including antiproliferation and antiviral responses. Upon IFN treatment, STAT1 and STAT2 become tyrosine phosphorylated, assemble as heterodimers that bind IRF9 to form the ISGF3 complex.  This complex translocates to the nucleus, binds to promoters of IFN-stimulated genes and mediates gene transcription.  Consequently, mutations in STAT2 or loss of STAT2 expression leads to impairment in IFN signal transduction and gene activation.  IFN-alpha is an approved drug for the treatment of several forms of cancer. Yet only a subset of patients who receive IFN-alpha therapy benefit from the treatment.  Given that STAT2 is activated by IFNs, it is important to define if the reduced or lack of antitumor effects seen in cancer patients on IFN therapy is due to in defects in STAT2 function. Our goal is to identify regions/motifs within the structural domains of STAT2 that not only are essential for the tyrosine phosphorylation of STAT2, but also regulate the antitumor effects of IFN-alpha.  Collectively, the results of our studies will emphasize the physiological role of STAT2 in cancer.  From a clinical viewpoint, cancer patients who may benefit the most from receiving IFN-alpha therapy can be selected based on their STAT2 function.

Application Note

This Protein-A purified antibody has been tested for use in ELISA, immunohistochemistry, and western blotting.  Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.  Expect a band approximately 113 kDa in size corresponding to STAT2 protein by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.

Purity/Specificity

This Protein-A purified antibody is directed against human STAT2 protein. A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross-reactivity with STAT2 protein from human, rat (73%) and mouse (76%), sources based on homology with the immunizing sequence. Reactivity against homologues from other sources is not known.

Storage Condition

Store vial at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
