  • Receptor for interleukin 18 (IL-18). Binding to the agonist leads to the activation of NF-kappa-B.
Pathway Interaction Database
  • IL12 signaling mediated by STAT4
  • IL12-mediated signaling events
  • IL23-mediated signaling events
Pathway Studio
  • Th1 Cell Differentiation

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs6725806).
However, the sentinel SNP is not contained in SNiPA's database (1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population). Thus, no information about linked genes or further functional annotation is available.
