Interleukin 4 receptor

IL-4R, IL-4Ralpha, interleukin-4 receptor
This gene encodes the alpha chain of the interleukin-4 receptor, a type I transmembrane protein that can bind interleukin 4 and interleukin 13 to regulate IgE production. The encoded protein also can bind interleukin 4 to promote differentiation of Th2 cells. A soluble form of the encoded protein can be produced by an alternate splice variant or by proteolysis of the membrane-bound protein, and this soluble form can inhibit IL4-mediated cell proliferation and IL5 upregulation by T-cells. Allelic variations in this gene have been associated with atopy, a condition that can manifest itself as allergic rhinitis, sinusitus, asthma, or eczema. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms, a membrane-bound and a soluble form, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Murine germinal center B cells require functional Fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 signaling for IgG1 class-switch recombination.
Bokarewa et al., Göteborg, Sweden. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, Jan 2016
B cells from Flt3 ligand-deficient mice have impaired IL-4R signaling, with reduced phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator of transcription (Stat) 6, and demonstrate a failure to initiate CSR to IgG1 with low expression of γ1 germ-line transcripts, resulting in impaired IgG1 production.

Clinical and experimental evidence indicate that polymorphisms within the interleukin 4 (IL-4) receptor (IL-4R) chain are sufficient for altered strength of IL-4/IL-13 signaling, leading to an exaggerated allergic inflammatory response and increase susceptibility to allergic phenotypes.

Puri et al., Silver Spring, United States. In Discov Med, Nov 2015
Since interleukin-4 receptor (IL-4R) is overexpressed in human solid cancer, we examined expression of IL-4R in 50 cases of anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC), 37 well-differentiated papillary cancer (WDPC), 35 well-differentiated follicular cancer of thyroid (WDFC), and 37 normal thyroid specimens by immunohistochemistry (IHC) and in-situ hybridization (ISH) techniques.
Interleukin-4 Receptor α Signaling in Myeloid Cells Controls Collagen Fibril Assembly in Skin Repair.
Eming et al., Köln, Germany. In Immunity, Nov 2015
We have demonstrated that, during skin repair in mice, interleukin-4 receptor α (IL-4Rα)-dependent macrophage activation controlled collagen fibril assembly and that this process was important for effective repair while having adverse pro-fibrotic effects.
Enteric nematodes and the path to up-regulation of type 2 cytokines IL-4 and IL-13.
Zhao et al., Baltimore, United States. In Cytokine, Sep 2015
Both the immune and functional outcomes depend largely on IL-4/IL-13 signaling through STAT6, with a dominant role for IL-13 working through the type 2 IL-4 receptor (IL-4R).

We present data supporting the hypothesis that impaired apoE4 function modulates Aβ-induced effects on inflammatory receptor signaling, including amplification of detrimental (toll-like receptor 4-p38α) and suppression of beneficial (IL-4R-nuclear receptor) pathways.
