STAT1, also known as signal transducter and activator of transcription 1, is a ubiquitously expressed protein that is activated in response to cytokine signaling, including IFN-α, IFN-γ, EGF, PDGF, and IL-6. Upon activation, cytosolic STAT1 is phosphorylated by receptor-associated kinases, translocates to the nucleus, and functions as a transcriptional activator. Two isoforms of STAT1, with predicted molecular weights of 87 (STAT1α) and 83 kD (STAT1β), exist as a result of alternative RNA processing. This clone is specific for STAT1α. STAT1 is involved in IFN-mediated immune responses, and STAT1-deficient mice are highly sensitive to bacterial and viral infections.Product Details

WB - Quality tested
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.05 - 0.25 µg per ml (1:2000 - 1:5000 dilution). It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
This antibody is specific for STAT1 isoform a and is not predicted to recognize the ß isoform due to the absence of the region corresponding to the immunizing peptide.
This clone displayed a stronger affinity for STAT1a in parallel western blot testing with BioLegend’s anti-STAT1 antibody (clone 10C4B40).
U3A cells were selected for antibody specificity testing because the cell line does not express STAT11.
This clone was derived from a human STAT1 peptide phosphorylated at Serine 727 immunogen, but tested negative for phospho-recognition while displaying strong pan-reactivity. Supplemental data is provided confirming the differences in phosphorylation of STAT1 Serine 727 in HeLa cells treated with or without nocodazole.
