Genetic association of key Th1/Th2 pathway candidate genes, IRF2, IL6, IFNGR2, STAT4 and IL4RA, with atopic asthma in the Indian population.
Delhi, India. In J Hum Genet, 21 Jun 2015
Five SNPs, rs3733475A/C (IRF2), rs2069832A/G (IL6), rs2012075G/A (IFNGR2) and rs1400656G/A (STAT4) and rs1805011C/A (IL4RA) were found to be associated with asthma in family based as well as in case-control analyses (P=0.002,

Association of susceptible genetic markers and autoantibodies in rheumatoid arthritis.
Chennai, India. In J Genet, Aug 2014
A considerable number of confirmed associations with RA and other autoimmune disease susceptibility loci including peptidylarginine deiminase type 4 (PADI4), protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor type 22 (PTPN22), signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT4), cluster of differentiation 244 (CD244) and cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA4), located outside the MHC have been reported recently.
TH1/TH2 cell differentiation and molecular signals.
Shanghai, China. In Adv Exp Med Biol, 2013
IL-12 and IFN-γ make Naive CD4+ T cells highly express T-bet and STAT4 and differentiate to TH1 cells, while IL-4 make Naive CD4+ T cells highly express STAT6 and GATA3 and differentiated to TH2 cells.
