Stat3 is a member of a group of proteins (Signal Transduction and Activators of Transcription) that act as both signal transducers for cytokines and growth factors, as well as transcription factors (1,2). Stats are activated by tyrosine phosphorylation in response to different ligands, after which they translocate to the cell nucleus (1). Stat3 is constitutively activated in a number of human tumors (3). Stat3 is activated by phosphorylation on tyrosine 705 which induces dimerization, nuclear translocation, and DNA binding While, Stat3-activated transcription seems to be regulated by serine phosphorylation at serine 727 (4)
