RGD ID: 2895
Description: Enables interleukin-2 receptor activity. Involved in inflammatory response to antigenic stimulus; positive regulation of T cell differentiation; and positive regulation of T cell proliferation. Located in cell surface. Used to study Korean hemorrhagic fever; asthma; and diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in immunodeficiency 41; lymphopenia; multiple sclerosis; type 1 diabetes mellitus; and type 1 diabetes mellitus 10. Orthologous to human IL2RA (interleukin 2 receptor subunit alpha); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-12 signaling pathway; interleukin-2 signaling pathway; cytokine mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-nitropropane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: IL-2 receptor alpha subunit; IL-2 receptor subunit alpha; IL-2-RA; IL-2R subunit alpha; IL2-RA; IL2RAC; interleukin 2 receptor, alpha; interleukin 2 receptor, alpha chain; interleukin-2 receptor alpha chain; interleukin-2 receptor subunit alpha
