Gene: Il4 (interleukin 4) Mus musculus
Symbol: Il4
Name: interleukin 4
Description: Exhibits cytokine activity. Involved in several processes, including T-helper cell differentiation; positive regulation of cellular metabolic process; and regulation of leukocyte activation. Localizes to external side of plasma membrane and extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; colon; hemolymphoid system; liver; and placenta. Used to study Sjogren's syndrome; atopic dermatitis; and type 1 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); hepatitis B; hepatitis C; pancreatic cancer (multiple); and vasculitis (multiple). Orthologous to human IL4 (interleukin 4); PARTICIPATES IN Fc epsilon receptor mediated signaling pathway; interleukin-12 signaling pathway; interleukin-4 signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (20S)-ginsenoside Rh1; (4-oxo-3-\{[5-(trifluoromethyl)-1,3-benzothiazol-2-yl]methyl\}-3,4-dihydrophthalazin-1-yl)acetic acid; 1,2-dibutyrin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: B-cell growth factor 1; B-cell IgG differentiation factor; B-cell stimulatory factor 1; BSF-1; IGG1 induction factor; Il-4; interleukin-4; lymphocyte stimulatory factor 1
