Gene: Il20 (interleukin 20) Mus musculus
Symbol: Il20
Name: interleukin 20
Description: Exhibits cytokine activity; interleukin-20 receptor binding activity; and interleukin-22 receptor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of osteoclast differentiation. Localizes to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in psoriasis. Orthologous to human IL20 (interleukin 20); PARTICIPATES IN Jak-Stat signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane; ferroheme b; ferulic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: cytokine Zcyto10; four alpha helix cytokine ZCYTO10; four helix bundle cytokine 10; IL-20; interleukin-20; MGC130536; Zcyto10
