This gene encodes a cytokine receptor that belongs to the interleukin-1 receptor family. The encoded protein is a receptor for interleukin-1 alpha, interleukin-1 beta, and interleukin-1 receptor antagonist. It is an important mediator involved in many cytokine-induced immune and inflammatory responses. This gene is located in a cluster of related cytokine receptor genes on chromosome 2q12.

GeneCards Summary for IL1R1 Gene
IL1R1 (Interleukin 1 Receptor Type 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IL1R1 include Schnitzler Syndrome and Cinca Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Interleukin-1 signaling and HTLV-I infection. GO annotations related to this gene include signal transducer activity and protease binding. An important paralog of this gene is IL1RL2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IL1R1 Gene
Receptor for IL1A, IL1B and IL1RN. After binding to interleukin-1 associates with the coreceptor IL1RAP to form the high affinity interleukin-1 receptor complex which mediates interleukin-1-dependent activation of NF-kappa-B, MAPK and other pathways. Signaling involves the recruitment of adapter molecules such as TOLLIP, MYD88, and IRAK1 or IRAK2 via the respective TIR domains of the receptor/coreceptor subunits. Binds ligands with comparable affinity and binding of antagonist IL1RN prevents association with IL1RAP to form a signaling complex.
Cytokines are proteinaceous signaling compounds that are major mediators of the immune response. They control many different cellular functions including proliferation, differentiation and cell survival/apoptosis but are also involved in several pathophysiological processes.
