Recombinant Human Interleukin-17
Cytotoxic T-Lymphocyte-Associated Serine Esterase 8 (CTLA8)
Human interleukin-17A (IL17A) is encoded by the IL17A gene located on chromosome 6, and belongs to the IL17 family that contains IL17A, IL17B, IL17C, IL17D, IL17E and IL17F. All of the members of the IL17 family have a similar protein structure, which includes four highly conserved cysteine residues that are critical to their 3 dimensional shape. Both recombinant and natural IL17 have been shown to exist as disulfide linked homodimers, and mature IL17 contains one potential N-linked glycosylation site. At the amino acid level, IL17 exhibits 63% amino acid identity with mouse IL17. However, there is no reported sequence similarity to any other known cytokines. IL17 is a T-cell expressed pleiotropic cytokine that exhibits a high degree of homology to a protein encoded by the ORF13 gene of the herpesvirus, Saimiri. High levels of human IL17 were induced from primary peripheral blood CD4+ T-cells upon stimulation, which can induce stromal cells to produce proinflammatory and hematopoietic cytokines.
