The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the STAT protein family. 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. In response to interferon (IFN) this protein forms a complex with STAT1 and IFN regulatory factor family protein p48 (ISGF3G) in which this protein acts as a transactivator but lacks the ability to bind DNA directly. Transcription adaptor P300/CBP (EP300/CREBBP) has been shown to interact specifically with this protein which is thought to be involved in the process of blocking IFN-alpha response by adenovirus. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Mar 2010]
