Gene: [04q31/IL15] interleukin 15;


FUN

Interleukin 15 exhibits many of the same biological properties as IL2 (GEM:04q2/IL2), including the activation and proliferation of T cells and specific interaction with the beta and gamma subunits of the IL2 receptor (GEM:22q13/IL2RB; GEM:0Xq131/IL2RG; Giri-1994; Grabstein-1994). The distribution of IL15 mRNA and IL15-receptor-alpha mRNA (GEM:10p1/IL15RA) suggests that IL-15 may have biological activities distinct from IL-2 (Giri-1995) and a broader range of cellular targets (Anderson-1995a)."
