CD125 antigens

CD125 antigens general information

CD125 Gene ID 3568
CD125 Official Full Name interleukin 5 receptor subunit alpha
CD125 Alias IL5RA, IL5R
CD125 Cellular Expression B; Granulocyte
CD125 Ligand/Receptor/Association IL-5
CD125 Function Receptor for IL5
CD125 Summary The protein encoded by this gene is an interleukin 5 specific subunit of a heterodimeric cytokine receptor. The receptor is comprised of a ligand specific alpha subunit and a signal transducing beta subunit shared by the receptors for interleukin 3 (IL3), colony stimulating factor 2 (CSF2/GM-CSF), and interleukin 5 (IL5). The binding of this protein to IL5 depends on the beta subunit. The beta subunit is activated by the ligand binding, and is required for the biological activities of IL5. This protein has been found to interact with syndecan binding protein (syntenin), which is required for IL5 mediated activation of the transcription factor SOX4. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding four distinct isoforms have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]
