Recombinant Human Interleukin-17B
Neuronal interleukin-17-related factor, NIRF
IL17B, also named IL20, NIRF and ZCYTO7, belongs to the IL17 family and it stimulates the release of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and IL1-beta from the monocytic cell line THP-1. IL17B mRNA is expressed in adult pancreas, small intestine, and stomach. The IL17 family is comprised of at least six proinflammatory cytokines that share a conserved cysteine-knot structure but diverge at the N-terminus. IL17 family members are glycoproteins secreted as dimers that induce local cytokine production and recruit granulocytes to sites of inflammation. IL17B binds the IL17B receptor, but not the IL17 receptor; it is most homologous with IL17D, which is expressed by resting CD4+ T cells and CD19+ B cells. Immunohistochemical analysis of several nerve tissues indicates that this cytokine is primarily localized to neuronal cell bodies.
