Summaries for IL25 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IL25 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine that shares sequence similarity with interleukin 17. This cytokine can induce NF-kappaB activation, and stimulate the production of interleukin 8. Both this cytokine and interleukin 17B are ligands for the cytokine receptor IL17BR. Studies of a similar gene in mice suggest that this cytokine may be a pro-inflammatory cytokine favoring the Th2-type immune response. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for IL25 Gene

IL25 (Interleukin 25) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are IL-17 Family Signaling Pathways and Th2 Differentiation Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and interleukin-17E receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is IL17C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IL25 Gene

  • Induces activation of NF-kappa-B and stimulates production of the proinflammatory chemokine IL-8. Proinflammatory cytokine favoring Th2-type immune responses.
