Previous GeneCards Identifiers for IL1RAP Gene
This gene encodes a component of the interleukin 1 receptor complex, which initiates signalling events that result in the activation of interleukin 1-responsive genes. Alternative splicing of this gene results in membrane-bound and soluble isoforms differing in their C-terminus. The ratio of soluble to membrane-bound forms increases during acute-phase induction or stress. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2018]
GeneCards Summary for IL1RAP Gene
IL1RAP (Interleukin 1 Receptor Accessory Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IL1RAP include Marginal Corneal Ulcer and Indolent Myeloma. Among its related pathways are Bacterial infections in CF airways and IL-1 signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include obsolete signal transducer activity and interleukin-1 receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is IL1RAPL2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for IL1RAP Gene
Coreceptor for IL1RL2 in the IL-36 signaling system (By similarity). Coreceptor with IL1R1 in the IL-1 signaling system. Associates with IL1R1 bound to IL1B to form the high affinity interleukin-1 receptor complex which mediates interleukin-1-dependent activation of NF-kappa-B 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. Recruits TOLLIP to the signaling complex. Does not bind to interleukin-1 alone; binding of IL1RN to IL1R1, prevents its association with IL1R1 to form a signaling complex. The cellular response is modulated through a non-signaling association with the membrane IL1R2 decoy receptor. Coreceptor for IL1RL1 in the IL-33 signaling system. Can bidirectionally induce pre- and postsynaptic differentiation of neurons by trans-synaptically binding to PTPRD (By similarity). May play a role in IL1B-mediated costimulation of IFNG production from T-helper 1 (Th1) cells (Probable).
[Isoform 2]: Associates with secreted ligand-bound IL1R2 and increases the affinity of secreted IL1R2 for IL1B; this complex formation may be the dominant mechanism for neutralization of IL1B by secreted/soluble receptors (PubMed:12530978). Enhances the ability of secreted IL1R1 to inhibit IL-33 signaling (By similarity).
[Isoform 4]: Unable to mediate canonical IL-1 signaling (PubMed:19481478). Required for Src phosphorylation by IL1B. May be involved in IL1B-potentiated NMDA-induced calcium influx in neurons (By similarity).
