Gene: Il15 (interleukin 15) Mus musculus
Symbol: Il15
Name: interleukin 15
Description: Exhibits cytokine activity. Involved in several processes, including T cell activation; lymph node development; and regulation of lymphocyte activation. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in aspergillosis; asthma; pleurisy; and type 1 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; genitourinary system; gut; immune system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human IL15 (interleukin 15).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
