Description
Description

The Unpaired (UPD) family encodes the only known cytokines capable of activating the JAK/STAT pathway in D.mel, by binding the receptor dome. This pathway is involved in cell proliferation, embryonic development and stem cell maintenance. (Adapted from FBrf0232479, FBrf0213113 and FBrf0219535).
