Summaries for IL4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IL4 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a pleiotropic cytokine produced by activated T cells. This cytokine is a ligand for interleukin 4 receptor. The interleukin 4 receptor also binds to IL13, which may contribute to many overlapping functions of this cytokine and IL13. STAT6, a signal transducer and activator of transcription, has been shown to play a central role in mediating the immune regulatory signal of this cytokine. This gene, IL3, IL5, IL13, and CSF2 form a cytokine gene cluster on chromosome 5q, with this gene particularly close to IL13. This gene, IL13 and IL5 are found to be regulated coordinately by several long-range regulatory elements in an over 120 kilobase range on the chromosome. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for IL4 Gene

IL4 (Interleukin 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IL4 include Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis and Schistosomiasis. Among its related pathways are Immune response IFN alpha/beta signaling pathway and IL4-mediated signaling events. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and cytokine receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IL4 Gene

  • Participates in at least several B-cell activation processes as well as of other cell types (PubMed:3016727). It is a costimulator of DNA-synthesis. It induces the expression of class II MHC molecules on resting B-cells. It enhances both secretion and cell surface expression of IgE and IgG1. It also regulates the expression of the low affinity Fc receptor for IgE (CD23) on both lymphocytes and monocytes. Positively regulates IL31RA expression in macrophages (By similarity). Stimulates autophagy in dendritic cells by interfering with mTORC1 signaling and through the induction of RUFY4 (By similarity).
