Functioni

Associates with IL12B to form the IL-23 interleukin, a heterodimeric cytokine which functions in innate and adaptive immunity. IL-23 may constitute with IL-17 an acute response to infection in peripheral tissues. IL-23 binds to a heterodimeric receptor complex composed of IL12RB1 and IL23R, activates the Jak-Stat signaling cascade, stimulates memory rather than naive T-cells and promotes production of proinflammatory cytokines. IL-23 induces autoimmune inflammation and thus may be responsible for autoimmune inflammatory diseases and may be important for tumorigenesis.10 Publications

Disruption phenotypei

Mice have no overt phenotype but display compromised humoral and delayed-type hypersensitivity responses. They also have impaired secretion of IL17 and IL17F, higher succeptibility to Klebsiella pneumoniae and Citrobacter rodentium infection, do not develop experimentally-induced autoimmune encephalitis a mouse model of multiple sclerosis, collagen-induced arthritis a rodent model of rheumatoid arthritis and also spontaneous colitis induced by IL10 deficiency a rodent model of inflammatory bowel disease. Transgenic mice expressing Il23a ubiquitously display multiorgan inflammation and infertility, express acute phase genes, have impaired growth and dye prematurely.5 Publications
