Here, we observed that STAT1 (p-[Ser.sup.727]), STAT3 (p-[Ser.sup.727]), and JAK2 (p-[Tyr.sup.1007]/[Tyr.sup.1008]) were phosphorylated in LILRB1 and LILRB3 genes-transfected HD11 cell line, while un-phosphorylated (STAT1/3, JAK2, TYK2, and SOCS1) proteins were also detected in LILRB1 and LILRB3 genes-transfected HD11 cell line by western blotting.
In addition to the regulatory effects on the activation of macrophages by the classical IFN-[gamma]inducible pathway, SOCS1 regulates the alternative IL-4inducible pathway [78].
Of these, SOCS1 and SOCS3, expressed in beta cells, regulate the [IFN-.sub.[gamma]] signaling pathway (18).
