Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence showing that the gene product to be a target of genes previously linked to ageing
Description

Transcription factors like those of the STAT family are activated by growth factors and cytokines. Their roles in intracellular signalling pathways suggest factors such as STAT3 might be involved in ageing and/or age-related disease [266]. Expression levels of JAK-STAT signalling targets is increased with age, and STAT3 has been implicated in the regulation of self-renewal and stem cell fate in several tissues. Knockdown or pharmacological inhibition of the JAK-STAT enhances satellite stem cell division potential resulting in better muscle regeneration [3635]. STAT3 has been associated with age-related heart failure in mice [270].
