a non-receptor tyrosine-kinase of the Jak family expressed predominantly in immune cells. Mediates signal transduction via the common gamma-chain of cytokine receptors, including IL-2, -4, -7, -9, and -15. Interacts with members of the STAT (signal transduction and activators of transcription) family. Interacts with STAM2 and SHB. Contains two protein kinase domains. Mutations that abrogate JAK3 function cause an autosomal SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency disease). Inhibitor: R017s for organ transplants. Three differentially spliced isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
