Gene: Il2rb (interleukin 2 receptor subunit beta) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Il2rb
Name: interleukin 2 receptor subunit beta
RGD ID: 2896
Description: Exhibits interleukin-2 binding activity and interleukin-2 receptor activity. Involved in cytokine-mediated signaling pathway and natural killer cell activation. Localizes to cell surface. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma; immunodeficiency 63; and myasthenia gravis. Orthologous to human IL2RB (interleukin 2 receptor subunit beta); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-12 signaling pathway; interleukin-2 signaling pathway; cytokine mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH acetamide; acrylamide; barium sulfate.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: high affinity IL-2 receptor subunit beta; IL-2 receptor subunit beta; IL-2R subunit beta; IL-2RB; IL2RBC; interleukin 2 receptor, beta; interleukin 2 receptor, beta chain; interleukin-2 receptor subunit beta; P70-75
