Stat1-dependent and -Independent Pathways in IFN-gamma-dependent Signaling


Stat1-dependent and -Independent Pathways in IFN-gamma-dependent Signaling

Chilakamarti V Ramana et al. Trends Immunol.


The paradigm that emerged from studies during the past decade established a central role for Jak-Stat (signal transducer and activator of transcription) signaling pathways in promoting the diverse cellular responses induced by interferon gamma (IFN-gamma). However, recent studies have shown that the IFN-gamma receptor activates additional signaling pathways and can regulate gene expression by Stat1-independent pathways. The diversity of gene-expression patterns mediated by Stat1-dependent and -independent mechanisms and the balance between these two pathways play an important role in the biological response to IFN-gamma.
