Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- IL-4 Stat,
- transcription factor IL-4 STAT,
- signal transducer and activator of transcription 6, interleukin-4 induced,
- STAT, interleukin4-induced,
- signal transducer and activator of transcription 6,
STAT6 is a member of the STAT family of transcription factors. STAT family members are phosphorylated by the receptor associated kinases in response to cytokines and growth factors and are involved in signal transduction and activation of transcription. There are several transcript variants produced by alternative splicing.
There are no datasets associated with this biomarker.

The transcription factor STAT6 is a member of a family of DNA binding proteins. STAT6 has been shown to be a critical cell differentiation modulator in breast cancer cells.
STAT6 was one of numerous potential early detection biomarkers specific to triple-negative breast cancer in multiple pathways identified.
- Overexpression of alpha-defensin is associated with bladder cancer invasiveness.
- Targeting human 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase to mitochondria protects cells from 2-methoxyestradiol-induced-mitochondria-dependent apoptosis.
- Plasma biomarker profiles differ depending on breast cancer subtype but RANTES is consistently increased.
