Suppressor of cytokine signaling 7 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SOCS7 gene.[1][2][3]

Model organisms[edit]

Model organisms have been used in the study of SOCS7 function. A conditional knockout mouse line, called Socs7tm1a(EUCOMM)Wtsi[9][10] was generated as part of the International Knockout Mouse Consortium program — a high-throughput mutagenesis project to generate and distribute animal models of disease to interested scientists.[11][12][13]

Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen to determine the effects of deletion.[7][14] Twenty five tests were carried out on mutant mice and one significant abnormality was observed: homozygous mutant males showed a decreased response to stress-induced hyperthermia.[7]


SOCS7 has been shown to interact with NCK1.[1]
