Abstract

Background: The precise roles for Rictor/Sin1 complexes in IFN signaling remain to be defined. Results: Targeted disruption Rictor/Sin1 results in defects in activation of elements of Stat pathways. These proteins are required for IFN antineoplastic effects on malignant erythroid precursors. Conclusion: Rictor/Sin1 play critical roles in IFN signaling. Significance: This study provides evidence for a key mechanism for gene regulation associated with generation of IFN antineoplastic responses.
