IL-17RA Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total IL-17RA protein.

Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Val790 of human IL-17RA protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.

The IL-17 family of cytokines consists of IL-17A-F, and their receptors include IL-17RA-RE (1). IL-17 cytokines are produced by a variety of cell types including the Th17 subset of CD4+ T cells, as well as subsets of γδ T cells, NK cells, and NKT cells (2). IL-17A and IL-17F, the most well-studied of the IL-17 cytokines, contribute to fungal and bacterial immunity by inducing expression of proinflammatory cytokines, chemokines, and antimicrobial peptides (2). In addition, IL-17A contributes to the pathogenesis of several autoimmune diseases (3). IL-17E promotes Th2 cell responses (4). The roles of IL-17B, IL-17C, and IL-17D are less clear, however these family members also appear to have the capacity to induce proinflammatory cytokines (1,5,6). IL-17 receptors have an extracellular domain, a transmembrane domain, and a SEFIR domain. They are believed to signal as homodimers, heterodimers, or multimers through their SEFIR domain by recruiting the SEFIR domain-containing adaptor Act1 (7). Unlike most cytokines that signal through Jak/STAT pathways, IL-17 signaling results in NF-κB activation (8).

IL-17RA associates with IL-17RC to mediate signaling by homodimers and heterodimers of IL-17A and IL-17F (9,10). IL-17RA is broadly expressed, with highest expression in hematopoietic cells (11).
