Special Issue “Targeting STAT3 and STAT5 in Cancer”

Paper published in Molecular Metabolism

Our group successfully published a paper on STAT5 signaling in lipid metabolism in the journal “Molecular Metabolism”.

Doris Kaltenecker and Katrin Spirk were working together on this project and investigated the function of STAT5 in brown adipose tissue thermogenesis, as well as its role in the brown remodelling of white adipose tissue. They demonstrate in their work the importance of STAT5 for the functionality and the β-adrenergic responsiveness of thermogenic adipose tissue.

STAT5 is required for lipid breakdown and beta-adrenergic responsiveness of brown adipose tissue.

Congratulations Doris and Katrin!

Collaborative paper published in Cancers

Collaborative efforts with the Medical University of Vienna resulted in a new manuscript concerning STAT5 activation in CD34+/CD38 MPN stem cells, published in the journal Cancers. The article is a part of the special issue Targeting STAT3 and STAT5 in Cancer.

STAT5 is Expressed in CD34+/CD38 Stem Cells and Serves as a Potential Molecular Target in Ph-Negative Myeloproliferative Neoplasms.

Collaborative paper published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation

Due to our collaboration with the brilliant researchers at the Technical University of Denmark, we gained novel insights into the role of STAT5 in the programming of innate gamma delta T cells in the neonatal microenvironment. Together, we have now published this study in The Journal of Clinical Investigation. These findings could benefit and contribute to future therapies for human immunological diseases.

The neonatal microenvironment programs innate γδ T cells through the transcription factor STAT5.
