STAT1 is a member of the Signal Transducers and Activators of Transcription family of transcription factors. STAT1 is involved in upregulating genes due to a signal by either type I, type II, or type III interferons. In response to IFN-γ stimulation, STAT1 forms homodimers or heterodimers with STAT3 that bind to the GAS (Interferon-Gamma-Activated Sequence) promoter element; in response to either IFN-α or IFN-β stimulation, STAT1 forms a heterodimer with STAT2 that can bind the ISRE (Interferon-Stimulated Response Element) promoter element.[1] In either case, binding of the promoter element leads to an increased expression of ISG (Interferon-Stimulated Genes).

Expression of STAT1 can be induced with diallyl disulfide, a compound in garlic.[2]


STAT1 has been shown to interact with Protein kinase R,[3][4] Src,[5][6] IRF1,[7] STAT3,[8][9][10] MCM5,[11][12] STAT2,[13][14][15] CD117,[16] Fanconi anemia, complementation group C,[17][18][19] CREB-binding protein,[20] Interleukin 27 receptor, alpha subunit,[21] PIAS1,[22] BRCA1,[23] Epidermal growth factor receptor,[5][10] PTK2,[24] Mammalian target of rapamycin,[25] IFNAR2,[26][27] PRKCD,[25] TRADD,[28] C-jun,[29] Calcitriol receptor,[30] ISGF3G[31] and GNB2L1.[27][32]
