Interleukin-4 Receptor
Structural Formula Vector Image
Title: Interleukin-4 Receptor
Additional Names: IL-4R
Literature References: Endogenous receptor for interleukin-4, q.v., expressed on the surface of B and T lymphocytes, mast cells and macrophages, that mediates the bioactivities of the cytokine. mol wt ~140 kDa. Also secreted as a soluble, truncated form (sIL-4R) which lacks the transmembrane and intracellular domains and is capable of binding and sequestering circulating IL-4.
