STAT signalling in cell proliferation and in development

Curr Opin Genet Dev. 2000 Oct;10(5):503-7. doi: 10.1016/s0959-437x(00)00119-2.


Recent advances in STAT signalling research include a better understanding of the roles of mammalian STAT proteins in cell proliferation and apoptosis, and of non-mammalian STAT proteins in morphogenesis. Two different ways in which STAT signalling pathways can interface with Smad signalling pathways significantly increasing combinatorial signalling possibilities, have also been described.
