Abstract

Suppressor of cytokine signalling (SOCS) proteins act as part of a classical negative feedback loop regulating cytokine signal transduction. Expression of SOCS proteins is induced in response to cytokines and down-regulates the cytokine signal by inhibiting the JAK/STAT pathway. Growth hormone (GH) was previously shown to induce strong transient expression of SOCS-3 and to a lesser extent CIS, SOCS-1 and SOCS-2 in mouse liver (Adams, T.E., Hansen, J.A., Starr, R., Nicola, N.A., Hilton, D.J., Billestrup, N., 1998. Growth hormone preferentially induces the rapid, transient expression of SOCS-3, a novel inhibitor of cytokine receptor signalling. J. Biol. Chem. 273, 1285-1287.). In this work we ..
