Gene: Il15ra (interleukin 15 receptor subunit alpha) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Il15ra
Name: interleukin 15 receptor subunit alpha
Description: Predicted to have interleukin-15 receptor activity and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of neuron projection development; receptor signaling pathway via JAK-STAT; and response to nutrient levels. Predicted to localize to cell surface; cytoplasmic vesicle; and plasma membrane. Orthologous to human IL15RA (interleukin 15 receptor subunit alpha); PARTICIPATES IN Jak-Stat signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH atrazine; bisphenol A; endosulfan.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: interleukin 15 receptor alpha chain; interleukin 15 receptor, alpha; interleukin 15 receptor, alpha chain; interleukin-15 receptor alpha chain; interleukin-15 receptor subunit alpha; LOC364775; LOC502145; LOC690369; similar to Interleukin-15 receptor alpha chain precursor (IL-15R-alpha) (IL-15RA)
