Interleukin 2 receptor, beta

IL-2 receptor
The interleukin 2 receptor, which is involved in T cell-mediated immune responses, is present in 3 forms with respect to ability to bind interleukin 2. The low affinity form is a monomer of the alpha subunit and is not involved in signal transduction. The intermediate affinity form consists of an alpha/beta subunit heterodimer, while the high affinity form consists of an alpha/beta/gamma subunit heterotrimer. Both the intermediate and high affinity forms of the receptor are involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis and transduction of mitogenic signals from interleukin 2. The protein encoded by this gene represents the beta subunit and is a type I membrane protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Heiser et al., Brisbane, Australia. In J Dairy Sci, Feb 2016
The numbers of T helper lymphocytes (CD4+), cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CD8+), natural killer cells (CD335+), and γδ T lymphocytes (WC1+) as well as their activation status [IL-2 receptor (CD25)+ cells] were highly variable between animals, but there was no evident effect of BCS, feeding level, or time.
New Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms of Tolerance: Tolerogenic Actions of IL-2.
Piaggio et al., Paris, France. In Methods Mol Biol, Dec 2015
Treg cells are exquisitely sensitive to IL-2 due to their constitutive expression of the high affinity IL-2 receptor (IL-2R) and the new paradigm suggests that low-doses of IL-2 could selectively boost Treg cells in vivo.

Park et al., Bethesda, United States. In Cell Mol Life Sci, Nov 2015
UNASSIGNED: Originally identified as the third subunit of the high-affinity IL-2 receptor complex, the common γ-chain (γc) also acts as a non-redundant receptor subunit for a series of other cytokines, collectively known as γc family cytokines.
Comorbidity between depression and inflammatory bowel disease explained by immune-inflammatory, oxidative, and nitrosative stress; tryptophan catabolite; and gut-brain pathways.
Maes et al., Badalona, Spain. In Cns Spectr, Sep 2015
Common IO&NS underpinning between both disorders is evidenced by increased pro-inflammatory cytokine levels, eg, interleukin-1 (IL-1) and tumor necrosis factor-α, IL-6 trans-signalling; Th-1- and Th-17-like responses; neopterin and soluble IL-2 receptor levels; positive acute phase reactants (haptoglobin and C-reactive protein); lowered levels of negative acute phase reactants (albumin, transferrin, zinc) and anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL-10 and transforming growth factor-β); increased O&NS with damage to lipids, proteinsm and DNA; increased production of nitric oxide (NO) and inducible NO synthase; lowered plasma tryptophan but increased TRYCAT levels; autoimmune responses; and increased bacterial translocation.
Use of Humanized Mice to Study the Pathogenesis of Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases.
Grisham et al., Salt Lake City, United States. In Inflamm Bowel Dis, Jul 2015
The discovery that targeted mutation of the IL-2 receptor common gamma chain in lymphopenic mice allows for the long-term engraftment of functional human immune cells has advanced greatly our ability to humanize the mouse immune system.
IL-2: Change Structure … Change Function.
Trotta et al., San Francisco, United States. In Immunity, Jun 2015
In this issue of Immunity, Spangler et al. and Mitra et al. demonstrate how structural changes in the IL-2 molecule alter interactions with the IL-2 receptor, leading to differential cellular targeting and biochemical responses and selective immune consequences.
