Jak2 is a member of the Janus family tyrosine kinases (Jaks), whose function is to transduce extracellular signals from cytokines and interferons. Jaks associate with cytokine receptors; upon ligand binding, Jaks phosphorylate the receptor. The phosphorylated receptors are bound by SH2-containing proteins, one class of which is the signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs). Activated STATs, then, translocate to the nucleus to mediate gene transcription (1,2). Tyr1007/1008 of Jak2 are the homologous Tyr1054/1055 in Tyk2, and phosphorylation at these residues is needed for Tyk2 activation (3). A chromosomal aberration involving Jak2 is found in a form of pre-B acute myeloid leukemia (4).
