FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The interleukin 2 (IL2) receptor alpha (IL2RA) and beta (IL2RB) chains, together with the common gamma chain (IL2RG), constitute the high-affinity IL2 receptor. Homodimeric alpha chains (IL2RA) result in low-affinity receptor, while homodimeric beta (IL2RB) chains produce a medium-affinity receptor. Normally an integral-membrane protein, soluble IL2RA has been isolated and determined to result from extracellular proteolyisis. Alternately-spliced IL2RA mRNAs have been isolated, but the significance of each is presently unknown. Mutations in this gene are associated with interleukin 2 receptor alpha deficiency.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit massive proliferation of polyclonal T and B cells as adults and develop autoimmune disorders including inflammatory bowel disease and hemolytic anemia with age. [provided by MGI curators]
