Gene: Il3 (interleukin 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Il3
Name: interleukin 3
RGD ID: 2897
Description: Enables cytokine activity and interleukin-3 receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including hemopoiesis; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and regulation of cell growth. Located in extracellular space. Used to study osteosarcoma. Biomarker of prostatic hypertrophy and pyelonephritis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Graves ophthalmopathy; Graves' disease; asthma; and rheumatoid arthritis. Orthologous to human IL3 (interleukin 3); PARTICIPATES IN Fc epsilon receptor mediated signaling pathway; interleukin-3 signaling pathway; apoptotic cell death pathway; INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; bisphenol A; Calcimycin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: hematopoietic growth factor; IL-3; interleukin-3; mast cell growth factor; MCGF; multipotential colony-stimulating factor; P-cell-stimulating factor
