Anti-IL-17F [8F5.1A9]

Info

Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets IL-17F
Reactivity Mouse
Relevance Interleukin 17F (IL-17F) is a 37 kD IL-17 family member.  The IL-17 family consists of six members including IL-17 (also called IL-17A), IL-17B, IL-17C, IL-17D, IL-17E (also called IL-25), and IL-17F.  IL-17F shares the strongest similarity to IL-17A and forms a homodimer or heterodimer with IL-17A. It is produced by Th17 cells, mast cells, basophils, and epithelial cells.  IL-17F is an important regulator of inflammatory responses.  It is involved in host defense against mucoepithelial infection by Staphylococcus aureus and Citrobacter rodentium.  Overexpression of the IL-17F gene in the airways of mice is associated with airway neutrophilia, the induction of many cytokines, an increase in airway hyperreactivity, and mucus hypersecretion. IL-17F is also involved in cancer immunity and autoimmune responses. IL-17F, like IL-17A, depends on IL-17R for its signaling in vitro and in vivo.  P38 MAPK, ERK1/2, Act1 (NF-kB activator protein 1), and TRAF6 are involved in IL-17F signaling.
