Summaries for IL2RB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IL2RB Gene

  • The interleukin 2 receptor, which is involved in T cell-mediated immune responses, is present in 3 forms with respect to ability to bind interleukin 2. The low affinity form is a monomer of the alpha subunit and is not involved in signal transduction. The intermediate affinity form consists of an alpha/beta subunit heterodimer, while the high affinity form consists of an alpha/beta/gamma subunit heterotrimer. Both the intermediate and high affinity forms of the receptor are involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis and transduction of mitogenic signals from interleukin 2. The protein encoded by this gene represents the beta subunit and is a type I membrane protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for IL2RB Gene

IL2RB (Interleukin 2 Receptor, Beta) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IL2RB include polyarticular onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis and oligoarticular juvenile arthritis. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include interleukin-2 receptor activity and interleukin-2 binding.

    • Non-covalent dimer of an alpha and a beta subunit. IL2R exists in 3 different forms: a high affinity dimer, an intermediate affinity monomer (beta subunit), and a low affinity monomer (alpha subunit). The high and intermediate affinity forms also associate with a gamma subunit. Interacts with SHB upon interleukin stimulation. Interacts with HTLV-1 accessory protein p12I.
