Anti-IL17E recognizes IL-17E (also known as IL25). IL-17E is produced and secreted by intra-epithelial lymphocytes, lung epithelial cells, alveolar macrophages, eosinophils, basophils, NKT cells, mast cells and cells of the gastro-intestinal tract and uterus. IL-17E stimulates the production of Th2-type cytokines. IL-17E limits Th17 cell development by inducing the expression of IL-13 by dendritic cells or by inhibiting IL-23 production by macrophages. Induces activation of NF-kappa-B and stimulates production of the proinflammatory chemokine IL-8. A number of cytokines, including IL-17E, have been implicated as oncogenes, reflecting the importance of these proteins in cell growth and survival. Anti-IL-17E cytokine antibody is ideal for investigators involved in Immunology, Signal Transduction research, Cancer and pro-inflammatory pathologies.
