Suppressor of cytokine signalling 2 (IPR028410)

Short name: SOCS2

Family relationships



Suppressor of cytokine signalling (SOCS) proteins form part of a classical negative feedback system that regulates cytokine signal transduction. They have been implicated in the negative regulation of several pathways, particularly the JAK/STAT pathway. SOCS2 is necessary for normal growth regulation [PMID: 12645661]. It appears to be a negative regulator in the growth hormone/IGF1 signaling pathway [PMID: 9727029, PMID: 12552091].
