Previous GeneCards Identifiers for IRAK3 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase protein family. Members of this family are essential components of the Toll/IL-R immune signal transduction pathways. This protein is primarily expressed in monocytes and macrophages and functions as a negative regulator of Toll-like receptor signaling. Mutations in this gene are associated with a susceptibility to asthma. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for IRAK3 Gene
IRAK3 (Interleukin 1 Receptor Associated Kinase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IRAK3 include Asthma-Related Traits 5 and Asthma. Among its related pathways are Toll-like Receptor Signaling Pathway and Transcription_NF-kB signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and protein kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is IRAK1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for IRAK3 Gene
Inhibits dissociation of IRAK1 and IRAK4 from the Toll-like receptor signaling complex by either inhibiting the phosphorylation of IRAK1 and IRAK4 or stabilizing the receptor complex.
The IRAKs (Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinases) are serine-threonine kinases, EC 220.127.116.11, that are essential regulators of IL-1R and TLR-mediated signaling. Four IRAK isoforms have been identified to date, IRAK1, IRAK2, IRAK3 (IRAK-M) and IRAK4.
