1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 72 kDa.
FunctionAssociates with IL12RB1 to form the interleukin-23 receptor. Binds IL23 and mediates T-cells, NK cells and possibly certain macrophage/myeloid cells stimulation probably through activation of the Jak-Stat signaling cascade. IL23 functions in innate and adaptive immunity and may participate in acute response to infection in peripheral tissues. IL23 may be responsible for autoimmune inflammatory diseases and be important for tumorigenesis.
Tissue specificityExpressed by monocytes, Th1, Th0, NK and dendritic cells. Isoform 1 is specifically expressed in NK cells.
Involvement in diseaseGenetic variations in IL23R are associated with inflammatory bowel disease type 17 (IBD17) [MIM:612261]. IBD17 is a chronic, relapsing inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract with a complex etiology. It is subdivided into Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis phenotypes. Crohn disease may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus, but most frequently it involves the terminal ileum and colon. Bowel inflammation is transmural and discontinuous; it may contain granulomas or be associated with intestinal or perianal fistulas. In contrast, in ulcerative colitis, the inflammation is continuous and limited to rectal and colonic mucosal layers; fistulas and granulomas are not observed. Both diseases include extraintestinal inflammation of the skin, eyes, or joints. Genetic variations in IL23R are a cause of susceptibility to psoriasis type 7 (PSORS7) [MIM:605606]. Psoriasis is a common, chronic inflammatory disease of the skin with multifactorial etiology. It is characterized by red, scaly plaques usually found on the scalp, elbows and knees. These lesions are caused by abnormal keratinocyte proliferation and infiltration of inflammatory cells into the dermis and epidermis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. Type 2 subfamily. Contains 2 fibronectin type-III domains.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated in response to IL23.

ab53656 staining IL23 in human colon by immunohistochemistry (formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Cells were formaldehyde fixed prior to blocking in 10% serum for 2 hours at 21°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/200 and incubated with the sample for 2 hours at 21°C. Alexa fluor® 594 rabbit polyclonal was used as the secondary.
