|Official Full Name||interleukin 28A (interferon, lambda 2)|
|Background||This gene encodes a cytokine distantly related to type I interferons and the IL-10 family. This gene, interleukin 28B (IL28B), and interleukin 29 (IL29) are three closely related cytokine genes that form a cytokine gene cluster on a chromosomal region mapped to 19q13. Expression of the cytokines encoded by the three genes can be induced by viral infection. All three cytokines have been shown to interact with a heterodimeric class II cytokine receptor that consists of interleukin 10 receptor, beta (IL10RB) and interleukin 28 receptor, alpha (IL28RA).|
|Synonyms||IL28A; interleukin 28A (interferon, lambda 2); interleukin 28A; interleukin-28A; IFNL2; IL 28A; IFN-lambda-2; cytokine Zcyto20; interferon lambda 2; interferon lambda-2; interferon-lambda 2; IL-28A|
