Gene: Il15ra (interleukin 15 receptor, alpha chain) Mus musculus
Symbol: Il15ra
Name: interleukin 15 receptor, alpha chain
Description: Predicted to have interleukin-15 receptor activity and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of natural killer cell differentiation. Localizes to the cytoplasmic vesicle and plasma membrane. Is expressed in central nervous system; retina; retina inner nuclear layer; and retina outer nuclear layer. Orthologous to human IL15RA (interleukin 15 receptor subunit alpha); PARTICIPATES IN Jak-Stat signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-fluoro-2,4-dinitrobenzene; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AA690181; IL-15 receptor subunit alpha; IL-15R-alpha; IL-15RA; interleukin-15 receptor subunit alpha
