Signal transducer and activator of transcription 5b (STAT5b) is a member of the STAT family of transcription factors. In response to cytokines and growth factors, STAT family members are phosphorylated by the receptor associated kinases, and then form homo- or heterodimers that translocate to the cell nucleus where they act as transcription activators. STAT5A mediates the signal transduction triggered by various cell ligands, such as IL2, IL4, CSF1, and different growth hormones. It has been shown to be involved in diverse biological processes, such as TCR signaling, apoptosis, adult mammary gland development, and sexual dimorphism of liver gene expression [taken from NCBI Entrez Gene (Gene ID: 6777)]
Alternative names for
STAT5b Antibody include STAT5B antibody, signal transducer and activator of transcription 5B antibody.
