IL17RC (Interleukin 17 receptor C) is a novel single-pass transmembrane protein belonging to the interleukin-17 cytokine family. It is expressed in T cells and B cells with an extracellular N terminal domain. It is widely distributed in prostate, cartilage, kidney, liver, heart, and muscle, whereas at a lower level in thymus and leukocytes. It is mapped on human chromosome 3p25.3-3p24.1. Its expression has also been found in various cancerous cells such as prostate cancer.
Interleukin-17 receptor C Precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)
IL17RC (Interleukin 17 receptor C) is involved in the cytokine signaling pathway as a decoy receptor. It is essentially required for the signaling of IL-17A, IL-17F, and IL-17A/F both in vitro and in vivo. In nonhemopoietic tissues, it couples with IL-17RA and forms a complex, which drives the functions of IL-17A and IL-17F homodimers as well as IL-17A/F heterodimers. Inherited deficiency of IL17RC causes an autosomal recessive disorder, chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CMC), with recurrent or persistent infections of the skin, nail, oral, and genital mucosae.
Features and Benefits
Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.
Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
- IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
- Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide
