IL12A (NK Cell Stimulatory Factor Chain 1, NKSF1, Cytotoxic Lymphocyte Maturation Factor 35kD Subunit, CLMF p35, IL-12 Subunit p35, Interleukin-12 Subunit alpha, IL-12A)
Description:
IL12A is a subunit of a cytokine that acts on T and natural killer cells, and has a broad array of biological activities. The cytokine is a disulfide-linked heterodimer composed of the 35kD subunit encoded by this gene, and a 40kD subunit that is a member of the cytokine receptor family. This cytokine is required for the T-cell-independent induction of interferon (IFN)-gamma, and is important for the differentiation of both Th1 and Th2 cells. The responses of lymphocytes to this cytokine are mediated by the activator of transcription protein STAT4. Nitric oxide synthase 2A (NOS2A/NOS2) is found to be required for the signaling process of this cytokine in innate immunity.
