Gene: Il17a (interleukin 17A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Il17a
Name: interleukin 17A
Description: Predicted to have cytokine activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to interleukin-1; defense response to fungus; and positive regulation of gene expression. Localizes to external side of plasma membrane and extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Graves' disease; Mycobacterium avium complex disease; bone inflammation disease (multiple); bronchial disease (multiple); and rhinitis (multiple). Orthologous to human IL17A (interleukin 17A).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: Ctla-8; Ctla8; cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 8; IL-17; IL-17A; Il17; interleukin-17A
