Gene: STAT3 (signal transducer and activator of transcription 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: STAT3
Name: signal transducer and activator of transcription 3
CRRD ID: 737517
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II repressing transcription factor binding activity; and nucleic acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of gene expression; and regulation of cellular protein metabolic process. Localizes to RNA polymerase II transcription regulator complex; cytosol; and nuclear lumen. 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. Biomarker of several diseases, including Churg-Strauss syndrome; cervix uteri carcinoma in situ; chronic lymphocytic leukemia; kidney cancer (multiple); and lung disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: acute-phase response factor; ADMIO; ADMIO1; APRF; DNA-binding protein APRF; FLJ20882; HIES; MGC16063; signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (acute-phase response factor)
