Many patients in this group could not be identified genetically until GOF heterozygous mis-sense mutations in the STAT1 molecule were defined in this decade [10,11].
Therefore, we examined the expression of transcriptional factors for Th1 (T-bet, STAT1) and Th2 (GATA3) cells in the spleen using qPCR.
Of importance here is that, in this study, all dominant partial cases were heterozygous for IFNGR1 low-frequency variants c.819_822del, 818delT, or 832G>T--all producing premature translation stop, resulting in IFN-[gamma]-R1 proteins truncated in the extracellular domain; lacking intracellular domains, JAK1, and STAT1 binding sites.
Western blot analysis was performed as described in the literature to evaluate the expressions of STAT1 and STAT2.

A new study led by Professor Uwe Vinkemeier from the University of Nottingham, centered on STAT1, a protein that can bind DNA and hence plays a vital role in regulating genes in the body.
For example, STAT1 is absolutely required for the actions of interferons, STAT4 is absolutely necessary for the actions of interleukin-12 (IL-12), STAT6 is required for the actions of interleukin-4 (IL-4), and JAK3 is required for the actions of cytokines that use the common y receptor [5].
