FunctionAssociates with IFNAR1 to form the type I interferon receptor. Receptor for interferons alpha and beta. Involved in IFN-mediated STAT1, STAT2 and STAT3 activation. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are directly involved in signal transduction due to their association with the TYR kinase, JAK1. Isoform 3 is a potent inhibitor of type I IFN receptor activity.
Tissue specificityIsoform 3 is detected in the urine (at protein level). Expressed in blood cells. Expressed in lymphoblastoid and fibrosarcoma cell lines.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the type II cytokine receptor family.
modificationsPhosphorylated on tyrosine residues upon interferon binding. Phosphorylation at Tyr-337 or Tyr-512 are sufficient to mediate interferon dependent activation of STAT1, STAT2 and STAT3 leading to antiproliferative effects on many different cell types.
Cellular localizationSecreted and Membrane.
