Official Full Name
interleukin 12 receptor, beta 1
The protein encoded by this gene is a type I transmembrane protein that belongs to the hemopoietin receptor;superfamily. This protein binds to interleukine 12 (IL12) with a low affinity, and is thought to be a part of IL12;receptor complex. This protein forms a disulfide-linked oligomer, which is required for its IL12 binding activity. The;coexpression of this and IL12RB2 proteins was shown to lead to the formation of high-affinity IL12 binding sites and;reconstitution of IL12 dependent signaling. The lack of expression of this gene was found to result in the;immunodeficiency of patients with severe mycobacterial and Salmonella infections. Two alternatively spliced transcript;variants of this gene encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.
