ⓘ Janus kinase 3 deficiency

JAK3 deficiency is a dysfunction in cytokine receptor signalling and their production of cytokines.

JAK3 is a tyrosine protein kinase, the enzyme which is encoded by JAK3 gene. It is a kinase which is only activated cytokines, receptors containing the gamma-subunit of the chain. JAK3 is involved in iniating signaling for receptors of the cytokine, because they themselves lack enzymatic activity. After activating such kinase fosfauriliruet specific tyrosine residues on the subunits of receptors of cytokines, which then activate transcription factors stat. JAK3 helps to regulate the differentiation and maturation of b-lymphocytes, T-cells and NK-cells.

Mutations in the JAK3 gene can lead to dysfunction of the kinase, which leads to autosomal severe combined immunodeficiency disease, or Vice versa, activation of the mutated JAK3 can lead to the development of leukemia. In the JAK3 tyrosine kinase is mutated in 10% to 16% of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia t-all cases.

Patients with JAK3 deficiency of the lack of necessary immune cells, which means that they do not have T cells and NK cells but have normal levels but dysfunctional cells. Necessary immune cells are resistant and the ability to fight certain bacteria, viruses and fungi. Patients are then prone to repeated and persistent infections that can be severe or life-threatening.

Affected infants typically develop chronic diarrhea, fungal infection in the mouth called oral thrush candidiasis, pneumonia, and skin rash. Constant disease also tends to slow down the development of the affected people. Without treatment, people with JAK3 deficiency DID usually live only into early childhood.
