Summary
[Homo sapiens] Differentiation of Type 3 innate lymphoid cells (ILC3) to IL7R(+) ILC1 is reversible whereas IL7R(+) ILC1 can differentiate to ILC3 in the presence of IL2, IL23A, and IL1B dependent on the transcription factor RORC, and this process is enhanced in the presence of retinoic acid.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene does not have any Entrez summary - the following is the summary from its human ortholog ENSG00000109471:
The protein encoded by this gene is a secreted cytokine that is important for the proliferation of T and B lymphocytes. The receptor of this cytokine is a heterotrimeric protein complex whose gamma chain is also shared by interleukin 4 (IL4) and interleukin 7 (IL7). The expression of this gene in mature thymocytes is monoallelic, which represents an unusual regulatory mode for controlling the precise expression of a single gene. The targeted disruption of a similar gene in mice leads to ulcerative colitis-like disease, which suggests an essential role of this gene in the immune response to antigenic stimuli.
