Gene Information

human ... STAT2(6773)

General description

The gene signal transducer and activator of transcription-2 (STAT2) is mapped to human chromosome 12q13.3. It belongs to the transcription factor STAT family. The protein localizes in the cytoplasm and the nucleus.


Signal transducer and activator of transcription 2 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Signal transducer and activator of transcription-2 (STAT2) interacts with STAT1 and is responsible for activation of STAT1. Absence of STAT2 abolishes IFN (Interferon)-α signaling. Simian virus 5 V protein interacts with DDB1 (DNA damage binding protein-1) and STAT2 for mediating STAT1 degradation. Human cytomegalovirus IE1 (immediate-early) and dengue virus polymerase NS5 (non-structural protein 5) interacts with STAT2, and represses IFN-stimulated antiviral response.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST77482.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

During cellular aging, many changes in cellular functions occur. A hallmark of aged cells is secretion of inflammatory mediators, which collectively is referred to as the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP). However, the mechanisms underlying such changes are unclear. Canonically, the...
