Interleukin-17 receptor A (IL-17 sR)

Target (abbrv.) IL-17 sR

Entrez Gene Symbol IL17RA
UniProt ID Q96F46
UniProt Comment
  • Receptor for IL17A (PubMed:17911633, PubMed:9367539). Receptor for IL17F (PubMed:19838198, PubMed:17911633). Binds to IL17A with higher affinity than to IL17F (PubMed:17911633). Binds IL17A and IL17F homodimers as part of a heterodimeric complex with IL17RC (PubMed:16785495). Also binds heterodimers formed by IL17A and IL17F as part of a heterodimeric complex with IL17RC (PubMed:18684971). Receptor for IL17C as part of a heterodimeric complex with IL17RE (PubMed:21993848). Activation of IL17RA leads to induction of expression of inflammatory chemokines and cytokines such as CXCL1, CXCL8/IL8 and IL6 (PubMed:16785495, PubMed:17911633, PubMed:18684971).

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs5994176) and 2 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
