MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is a secreted cytokine that is important for the proliferation of T and B lymphocytes. The receptor of this cytokine is a heterotrimeric protein complex whose gamma chain is also shared by interleukin 4 (IL4) and interleukin 7 (IL7). The expression of this gene in mature thymocytes is monoallelic, which represents an unusual regulatory mode for controlling the precise expression of a single gene. The targeted disruption of a similar gene in mice leads to ulcerative colitis-like disease, which suggests an essential role of this gene in the immune response to antigenic stimuli.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants develop adult onset autoimmune disease, with 50% mortality by 9 weeks due to hemolytic anemia. Survivors develop inflammatory bowl disease/colitis. Immune system dysregulation and CD4+ T-cell overproduction may be responsible. [provided by MGI curators]
