Entrez Gene Summary for IL12B Gene

  • This gene encodes a subunit of interleukin 12, a cytokine that acts on T and natural killer cells, and has a broad array of biological activities. Interleukin 12 is a disulfide-linked heterodimer composed of the 40 kD cytokine receptor like subunit encoded by this gene, and a 35 kD subunit encoded by IL12A. This cytokine is expressed by activated macrophages that serve as an essential inducer of Th1 cells development. This cytokine has been found to be important for sustaining a sufficient number of memory/effector Th1 cells to mediate long-term protection to an intracellular pathogen. Overexpression of this gene was observed in the central nervous system of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), suggesting a role of this cytokine in the pathogenesis of the disease. The promoter polymorphism of this gene has been reported to be associated with the severity of atopic and non-atopic asthma in children. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for IL12B Gene

IL12B (Interleukin 12B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IL12B include immunodeficiency 29, mycobacteriosis and familial atypical mycobacteriosis, il12b-related. Among its related pathways are Proteoglycans in cancer and TGF-Beta Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and protein heterodimerization activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IL12B Gene

  • Cytokine that can act as a growth factor for activated T and NK cells, enhance the lytic activity of NK/lymphokine-activated killer cells, and stimulate the production of IFN-gamma by resting PBMC.

  • Associates with IL23A to form the IL-23 interleukin, a heterodimeric cytokine which functions in innate and adaptive immunity. IL-23 may constitute with IL-17 an acute response to infection in peripheral tissues. IL-23 binds to a heterodimeric receptor complex composed of IL12RB1 and IL23R, activates the Jak-Stat signaling cascade, stimulates memory rather than naive T-cells and promotes production of proinflammatory cytokines. IL-23 induces autoimmune inflammation and thus may be responsible for autoimmune inflammatory diseases and may be important for tumorigenesis.

IL12B_HUMAN
  • Immunodeficiency 29 (IMD29) [MIM:614890]: A form of Mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial disease, a rare condition caused by impairment of interferon-gamma mediated immunity. It is characterized by predisposition to illness caused by moderately virulent mycobacterial species, such as Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine, environmental non-tuberculous mycobacteria, and by the more virulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Other microorganisms rarely cause severe clinical disease in individuals with susceptibility to mycobacterial infections, with the exception of Salmonella which infects less than 50% of these individuals. Clinical outcome severity depends on the degree of impairment of interferon-gamma mediated immunity. Some patients die of overwhelming mycobacterial disease with lepromatous-like lesions in early childhood, whereas others develop, later in life, disseminated but curable infections with tuberculoid granulomas. IMD29 is characterized by undetectable IL12B secretion from leukocytes. Affected individuals generally present with BCG disease after vaccination in childhood, and at least half also have Salmonella infection. Disease phenotype is relatively mild, and patients have a good prognosis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11753820, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9854038}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Psoriasis 11 (PSORS11) [MIM:612599]: A common, chronic inflammatory disease of the skin with multifactorial etiology. It is characterized by red, scaly plaques usually found on the scalp, elbows and knees. These lesions are caused by abnormal keratinocyte proliferation and infiltration of inflammatory cells into the dermis and epidermis. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
