||Interleukin 21 Receptor belongs to the type I cytokine receptors, and has been shown to form a heterodimeric receptor complex with the common gamma-chain, a receptor subunit also shared by the receptors for interleukin 2 (IL2) and interleukin 5 (IL5). This receptor transduces the growth promoting signal of IL21, and is important for the proliferation and differentiation of T cells, B cells, and natural killer (NK) cells. The ligand binding of this receptor leads to the activation of multiple downstream signaling molecules, including JAK1, JAK3, STAT1, and STAT3. Knockout studies of a similar gene in mouse suggest a role for this gene in regulating immunoglobulin production. Three alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Mouse IL-21 R is Mr 51.5 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS Page is Mr 70-80 kDa.
|State Of Matter:
||>95% by SDS Page and analyzed by silver stain.
||<0.1 ng per 1 µg as determined by the LAL method.
