Entrez Gene summary for IL21 Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the common-gamma chain family of cytokines with immunoregulatory activity. The
encoded protein plays a role in both the innate and adaptive immune responses by inducing the differentiation,
proliferation and activity of multiple target cells including macrophages, natural killer cells, B cells and
cytotoxic T cells. Dysregulation of this gene plays a role in multiple immune-mediated diseases including lupus,
psoriasis and chronic inflammatory diseases. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms
have been observed for this gene. (provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011)

GeneCards Summary for IL21 Gene:
IL21 (interleukin 21) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with IL21 include immunodeficiency, common variable, 11, and dacryoadenitis. GO annotations related to this gene include interleukin-2 receptor binding and cytokine activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: IL21_HUMAN, Q9HBE4
Function: Cytokine with immunoregulatory activity. May promote the transition between innate and adaptive
immunity. Induces the production of IgG(1) and IgG(3) in B-cells (By similarity). May play a role in
proliferation and maturation of natural killer (NK) cells in synergy with IL15. May regulate proliferation of
mature B- and T-cells in response to activating stimuli. In synergy with IL15 and IL18 stimulates interferon
gamma production in T-cells and NK cells. During T-cell mediated immune response may inhibit dendritic cells (DC)
activation and maturation
