New Role of Tumour Suppressor STAT3? Discovered in Leukaemia

he protein STAT3? has a positive influence on the course of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and could serve as a prognostic marker in the future. These are the outstanding results of a cancer research study at the Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences (KL Krems). In the work now published in Cell Death & Disease, an international research team succeeded in identifying the previously unknown effect of the protein on interferon-dependent signalling pathways.
