Il15ra, Interleukin-15 receptor subunit alpha
Also Known as
High-affinity receptor for interleukin-15 (PubMed:17947230). Can signal both in cis and trans where IL15R from one subset of cells presents IL15 to neighboring IL2RG-expressing cells (PubMed:17947230). In neutrophils, binds and activates kinase SYK in response to IL15 stimulation (By similarity). In neutrophils, required for IL15-induced phagocytosis in a SYK-dependent manner. The interleukin-15 receptor IL15R is a heterotrimer of IL15RA, IL2RB and IL2RG. IL15RA also self-associates (By similarity). Interacts with SYK.
