interleukin 17A

Gene Summary

Predicted to enable protein heterodimerization activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to glucocorticoid stimulus; positive regulation of necrotic cell death; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Located in cytoplasm and extracellular space. Used to study anti-basement membrane glomerulonephritis; congestive heart failure; myocarditis; pleurisy; and uveitis. Biomarker of several diseases, including acute necrotizing pancreatitis; inflammatory bowel disease (multiple); lipoid nephrosis; lung disease (multiple); and periodontal disease (multiple). Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Mycobacterium avium complex disease; autoimmune disease (multiple); bronchial disease (multiple); macular degeneration; and rhinitis (multiple). Orthologous to human IL17A (interleukin 17A). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
