Background: IL-4R alpha

Interleukin 4 Receptor alpha (IL-4 Ra), also known as CD124 and BSF receptor, is a widely expressed 140 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein in the class I cytokine receptor family. IL-4 Ra plays an important role in Th2-biased immune responses, alternative macrophage activation, mucosal immunity, allergic inflammation, tumor progression, and atherogenesis (1-5). Mature human IL-4 Ra consists of a 207 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) that contains a cytokine binding region and one fibronectin type III domain, a 24 aa transmembrane segment, and a 569 aa cytoplasmic domain that contains one Box 1 motif and one ITIM motif (6, 7). Within the ECD, human IL-4 Ra shares 51% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat IL-4 Ra. Soluble forms of IL-4 Ra, generated by alternate splicing or proteolysis, retain ligand binding properties and inhibit IL-4 bioactivity (8-11). IL-4 Ra is a component of two distinct receptor complexes and shows species selectivity between human and mouse (6). It can associate with the common gamma chain ( gammac) to form the IL-4 responsive type I receptor in which gammac increases the affinity for IL-4 and enables signaling (12, 13). It can alternatively associate with IL-13 Ra1 to form the type II receptor which is responsive to both IL-4 and IL-13 (14, 15). The use of shared receptor components contributes to the overlapping biological effects of IL-4 and IL-13 as well as other cytokines that utilize gammac (i.e. IL-2, IL-7, IL-9, IL-15, and IL-21) (16, 17).
