General description

Interleukin 17 receptor B (IL17RB) is a member of the IL-17 receptor (IL17R) family. It makes a heterodimeric receptor complex along with IL17RA. This family of proteins has a single transmembrane domain, which contains fibronectin type-III (FnIII) domain. They have an extracellular domain and a cytosolic domain which contains the unique SEFIR [SEF (similar expression to fibroblast growth factor genes) and IL-17R] domain. IL17RB acts as a receptor for IL17B as well as IL17E. In humans, this gene is located on chromosome 3p21.1. The molecular weight of IL17RB is 56kDa. It is expressed on lung fibroblasts, basophils along with CD4+ Th2 memory cells.


Interleukin-17 receptor B precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-IL17RB antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org). Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting. To view these protocols and other useful information about Prestige Antibodies and the HPA, visit sigma.com/prestige.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Interleukin 17 receptor B (IL17RB) expression is induced by Th2 cytokines, in antigen presenting cells. Induction of IL17RB leads to inflammatory responses via activation of Jun kinase (JNK), nuclear factor-κB and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK). Therefore, polymorphisms in this gene are associated with asthma, and can be used as markers to determine the risk of developing asthma. Studies suggest that IL17RB is the only gene, whose transcription varies in accordance with the IgE levels in asthmatics. Exposure to natural allergens leads to elevated levels of IL17RB in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). Blocking of this protein prevents lung inflammation and thus, IL17RB can be a potential therapeutic target for allergies.
