Interleukin 28 receptor, alpha

IFN-lambdaR1, IL-28Ralpha, LICR-2, IL28RA, IL-28R
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the class II cytokine receptor family. This protein forms a receptor complex with interleukine 10 receptor, beta (IL10RB). The receptor complex has been shown to interact with three closely related cytokines, including interleukin 28A (IL28A), interleukin 28B (IL28B), and interleukin 29 (IL29). The expression of all three cytokines can be induced by viral infection. The cells overexpressing this protein have been found to have enhanced responses to IL28A and IL29, but decreased response to IL28B. Three alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Naluai et al., Islamabad, Pakistan. In Mol Immunol, Mar 2015
Overall, only nine SNPs out of the 42 GWAS loci, displayed an odds ratio in the opposite allelic direction and only three did not reach similar odds ratio within 95% confidence interval as previously reported (SLC45A1/TNFRSF9, ELMO1 and IL28RA).

Haas et al., Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In J Innate Immun, 2014
Whilst IFN-λ shares many features with type I IFN induction and signalling pathways, the tissue-specific restricted expression of its receptor, IL28RA, makes IFN-λ a major mediator of host innate immunity in tissues and organs with a high epithelial cell content.

McPhee et al., Bristol, United States. In Plos One, 2014
HCV infection resulted in rapid down-regulation of the type I IFN-α receptor subunit 1 (IFNAR1) transcript in hepatocytes while the transcriptional level of the unique IFN-λ receptor subunit IL28RA was transiently increased.

Suicidal ideation during antidepressant treatment: do genetic predictors exist?
Perroud, Genève, Switzerland. In Cns Drugs, 2011
In this perspective, several genetic predictors have been highlighted, the majority of which relate to common mechanisms of antidepressant action: genes involved in the neurotrophic and synaptic plasticity systems (CREB1, and BDNF and its receptor NTRK2), noradrenergic system (ADRA2A), glutamatergic system (GRIA3, GRIK2 and GDA), inflammatory and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis systems (IL28RA and FKBP5) and in other brain functions (PAPLN, APOO, KCNIP4 and ELP3).
