Unformatted text preview: matopoietin) ③  Class II cytokine receptors (IFN) ④  TNF receptor family ⑤  Chemokine receptor family Class I cytokine receptors (hematopoietin) class 2 does not have the repeat motif in the WSX. has conserved cysteines WSX w=triptophane SX any amino acid affinity is based on how many dimers The IL-2R: A classic hematopoietin receptor typical. AKA? alpha chain is also called CD25 A cytokine binds its receptor…now what? Class I (hematopoietin) and Class II (interferon) cytokine receptors 1. JAKs associated with cytoplasmic tail 2. cytokine binding, dimerization, P-receptor 3. STATs bind p-receptor, JAKs then P-STAT 4. STAT goes into the nucleus and starts transcribing. sh2 domain JAK – protein tyrosine kinase (non-covalently associated with cytoplasmic tail) Janise Kinase(just another Cytokine binds to a class 1 or 2 receptor. kinase) JAK-STAT interactions Different JAKs Different STATs Stats can heterodimerize Why would you want all these combinations?
