The STAT3 transcription factor is an important signaling molecule for many cytokines and growth factor receptors and is required for murine fetal development. STAT3 is a member of the STAT (signal transducer and activator of transcription) protein family that is phosphorylated in response to a cytokine receptor-associated kinase activity. STAT3 is activated by phosphorylation at Tyr705, which induces dimerization, nuclear translocation, and DNA binding. Transcriptional activation was reported to be regulated by phosphorylation at Ser727 through MAPK and mTOR pathways.
STAT3 forms both homo- and heterotrimers and is involved in the activation of genes required for cell growth and apoptosis. STAT3 is also involved in gp130 signaling and binds to IL-6 response elements in various acute phase protein promoters. STAT3 is phosphorylated by signaling from IFNs, EGF, FGF, IL-5, HGF, LIF, and BMP-2. STAT3 activity is inhibited by PIAS3 and GRIM-19 and can also be regulated by the Rac1 protein.

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by western blotting. For western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 1.0 - 2.0 µg/mL. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 5.0 μg/mL is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
Clones A16089A and A16089B are both specific for STAT3 phosphorylated at serine 727, but performed differently for different applications tested:
Both clones displayed strong specificity and selectivity for WB, but clone A16089A displayed a considerably stronger affinity for the target compared to A16089B
Both clones performed well for ICC, though clone A16089A displayed mild extranuclear staining
A16089B performed well for ChIP, A16089A failed ChIP application testing
- STAT3 is a 770 amino acid protein with a predicted molecular weight of 88 kDa. It consists of a DNA binding domain, a SH2 domain, a regulatory tyrosine responsible for binding of SH2 domain, and a C-terminal transactivation domain.
