Gene: Il9 (interleukin 9) Mus musculus
Symbol: Il9
Name: interleukin 9
Description: Predicted to have cytokine activity and interleukin-9 receptor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of interleukin-5 biosynthetic process. Localizes to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma and respiratory syncytial virus infectious disease. Is expressed in gut; liver; thymus; and thymus primordium. Orthologous to human IL9 (interleukin 9); PARTICIPATES IN asthma pathway; Jak-Stat signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; bisphenol A; choline.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: cytokine P40; Il-9; interleukin-9; P40; T-cell growth factor P40
