Interleukin 17 （also known as CTLA8）
is a T cellexpressed
pleiotropic cytokine that exhibits a high degree of homology to a protein encoded by the ORF13 gene of
herpesvirus Saimiri. cDNA clones encoding IL17
have been isolated from activated rat, mouse and human T cells. Human IL17
cDNA encodes a 155 amino acid （aa）
residue precursor protein with a 19 amino acid residue signal peptide that is cleaved to yield the 136 aa residue mature IL17
containing one potential Nlinked
glycosylation site. Both recombinant and natural IL17
have been shown to exist as disulfidelinked
homodimers. At the amino acid level, human IL17
shows 72% and
63% sequence identity with herpesvirus and rat IL17,
respectively. An IL17
specific mouse cell surface receptor （IL17
R） has been cloned. While the expression of
mRNA is restricted to activated T cells, the expression of mIL17
R mRNA has been detected in virtually all cells and tissues tested. IL17
biological activities on a variety of cells including the induction of IL6
production in fibroblasts, the enhancement of surface expression of ICAM1
fibroblasts, activation of NFκB
and costimulation of T cell proliferation. The nonglycosylated,
has been shown to be active on human as
well as mouse cell lines.
