Description

signal transducer and activator of transcription 3

Gene Summary

Enables CCR5 chemokine receptor binding activity; glucocorticoid receptor binding activity; and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of growth factor dependent skeletal muscle satellite cell proliferation; positive regulation of interleukin-6 production; and regulation of cellular biosynthetic process. Acts upstream of or within cellular response to cytokine stimulus and cellular response to organic cyclic compound. Located in mitochondrial inner membrane and nucleus. Is active in Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; glutamatergic synapse; and postsynaptic density. Used to study several diseases, including duodenal ulcer; hyperuricemia; non-alcoholic fatty liver disease; obesity; and transient cerebral ischemia. Biomarker of colon cancer; colorectal carcinoma; heart disease; and pre-malignant neoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autoimmune disease (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); hyper IgE recurrent infection syndrome 1; reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human STAT3 (signal transducer and activator of transcription 3). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
