Gene: IL3 (interleukin 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: IL3
Name: interleukin 3
Description: Predicted to have interleukin-3 receptor binding activity. Involved in embryonic hemopoiesis; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and positive regulation of tyrosine phosphorylation of STAT protein. Predicted to localize to extracellular space. Implicated in Graves' disease; asthma; and rheumatoid arthritis. Biomarker of several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease; Ebola hemorrhagic fever; genital herpes; major depressive disorder; and obesity.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
