Key steps of the JAK-STAT pathway

A Cytokine receptor is a receptor which binds cytokines.

Members of the type I and type II cytokine receptor families possess no catalytic kinase activity, they rely on the Janus kinase (JAK) family of tyrosine kinases to phosphorylate and activate downstream proteins involved in their signal transduction pathways.
