STAT2 in Human Kidney. STAT2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney array using Mouse Anti-Human STAT2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB16661) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Signal transducer and activator of transcription 2 (STAT2) has an apparent M.W. of 113 kDa in SDS-PAGE gels. Human STAT2 is 851 amino acids (aa) in length and contains one SH2 domain (aa 572-667). Splicing variants produce two isoforms for human STAT2. The short isoform has a 32 aa substitution and a 199 aa deletion corresponding to aa 621 - 652 and aa 653 - 851 in the long isoform, respectively. Human STAT2 shares 73% and 65% aa sequence identity with rat and mouse STAT2, in that order. STAT2 functions as a signal transducer and activator of transcription that mediates signaling by type I IFNs (IFN-α and IFN-β), and it is also required for myogenic differentiation.
