High-affinity receptor for interleukin-15 (PubMed:8530383). Can signal both in cis and trans where IL15R from one subset of cells presents IL15 to neighboring IL2RG-expressing cells (By similarity). In neutrophils, binds and activates kinase SYK in response to IL15 stimulation (PubMed:15123770). In neutrophils, required for IL15-induced phagocytosis in a SYK-dependent manner (PubMed:15123770). Expression of different isoforms may alter or interfere with signal transduction (PubMed:10480910).By similarity3 Publications
