Interleukin 23 receptor is a type I cytokine receptor. IL23R is its human gene.[4]


The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of the receptor for IL23A/IL23. This protein pairs with the receptor molecule IL12RB1/IL12Rbeta1, and both are required for IL23A signaling. This protein associates constitutively with Janus kinase 2 (JAK2), and also binds to transcription activator STAT3 in a ligand-dependent manner.[4]

Clinical significance[edit]

Three variants in the IL23R gene have been shown to protect against Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.[5][6][7]

Model organisms[edit]

Model organisms have been used in the study of IL23R function. A conditional knockout mouse line called Il23rtm2a(EUCOMM)Wtsi was generated at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.[8] Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen[9] to determine the effects of deletion.[10][11][12][13] Additional screens performed: - In-depth immunological phenotyping[14]
