Marelle acts downstream of the Drosophila HOP/JAK kinase and encodes a protein similar to the mammalian STATs.

Cell | Feb 9, 1996

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8608595

We have identified a putative Drosophila STAT protein named Marelle that exhibits mutant phenotypes identical to mutations in the Hopscotch/JAK kinase. We show that a reduction in the amount of marelle gene activity suppresses the phenotype associated with a gain-of-function mutation in hopscotch and enhances the phenotype associated with a weak hopscotch mutation. We propose that Hopscotch activates Marelle to regulate transcription of target genes such as the pair rule gene even-skipped. Our results demonstrate the existence of an invertebrate JAK/STAT system.
