Hematopoiesis involves a complex array of growth factors that regulate the survival and proliferation of immature progenitors, influence differentiation commitment, and modulate end-stage cell functions. This mini-review is focused on the role of Stat activation in the development of myeloid cells in response to hematopoietic cytokines. Much of the evidence implicating Stats in these cellular processes comes from studies of mutant cytokine receptors selectively uncoupled from Stat activation, dominant-inhibitory Stat mutants, and mice with targeted disruptions of Stat genes. Together these approaches provide strong evidence that Stat activation, particularly of Stat3 and Stat5, plays an important role in myeloid differentiation and survival. Oncogene (2000).
