Entrez Gene Summary for IL13RA1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of the interleukin 13 receptor. This subunit forms a receptor complex with IL4 receptor alpha, a subunit shared by IL13 and IL4 receptors. This subunit serves as a primary IL13-binding subunit of the IL13 receptor, and may also be a component of IL4 receptors. This protein has been shown to bind tyrosine kinase TYK2, and thus may mediate the signaling processes that lead to the activation of JAK1, STAT3 and STAT6 induced by IL13 and IL4.

GeneCards Summary for IL13RA1 Gene

IL13RA1 (Interleukin 13 Receptor, Alpha 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IL13RA1 include malignant glioma and atopy. Among its related pathways are Akt Signaling and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include cytokine receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is IL5RA.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IL13RA1 Gene

  • Binds with low affinity to interleukin-13 (IL13). Together with IL4RA can form a functional receptor for IL13. Also serves as an alternate accessory protein to the common cytokine receptor gamma chain for interleukin-4 (IL4) signaling, but cannot replace the function of IL2RG in allowing enhanced interleukin-2 (IL2) binding activity
