Disease relevance of Il17ra


High impact information on Il17ra

  • Thus, IL-17R signaling is critical for optimal production of G-CSF and MIP-2 and local control of pulmonary K. pneumoniae infection [1].
  • IL-17R knockout (KO) mice displayed a significant delay in neutrophil recruitment into the alveolar space, and had greater dissemination of K. pneumoniae compared with control mice [1].
  • Neutralization of the human IL-17 receptor (IL-17R) by M202 antibody competitively reverses the IL-17-induced IL-6 upregulation [3].

Other interactions of Il17ra

  • This defect was associated with a significant reduction in steady-state levels of G-CSF and macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-2 mRNA and protein in the lung in response to the K. pneumoniae challenge in IL-17R KO mice [1].
