Anti-STAT6 phospho Y641 Antibody is ideal to study STAT6. STAT6 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. STAT6 is involved in interleukin-4 signaling. It interacts with NCOA1 via its C-terminal LXXLL motif. Further it induces the expression of BCL2L1/BCL-X(L), which is responsible for the anti-apoptotic activity of IL4. Knockout studies in mice suggested the roles of this gene in differentiation of T helper 2 (Th2) cells, expression of cell surface markers, and class switch of immunoglobulins. Following stimulation by IL-4 and IL-3, Stat6 is activated via phosphorylation at Tyr641 and translocates to the nucleus where it regulates cytokine-induced gene expression. STAT6 research areas include Immunology, Signal Transduction and Chromatin & Nuclear Signaling.
STAT6 phospho Y641 Antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Y641 of human STAT6 protein.
