  • Description: The Gamma2A Jak2 Cell Line has been developed by expressing protein tyrosine kinase JAK2 in a mutant cell line defective in the interferon-gamma signal transduction pathway. By using this cell line, the structural and functional analysis of JAk2 in IFN-gamma signalling has been examined. The cell line revealed that the specificity of JAK may lie mainly in their structural interaction with different receptors and signalling proteins rather than in the substrate specificity of their kinase dom...
  • Production details: The human sarcoma cell line HT 1080 was transfected with a vector encoding a selectable marker (guanine phosphoribosyltransferase) regulated by gamma interferon to create the parent 2C4- gamma 2A cell line. This cell line was then co-transfected with expression construct coding for JAK2.
