IL17RB is the receptor for IL17E, the only member of IL17 family promoting Th2 reactions. IL17RB is induced on human macrophages by IL4 and enhanced by TGFbeta. Overexpression of IL17RB is associated with poor prognosis and short survival of the breast cancer patients.IL17RB/IL17B signaling triggers a substantial increase in the cell growth, proliferation and migration through the activation of NF-kappaB as well as the up-regulation of the Bcl-2. IL17RB may be the only gene expressed in CD4+ T cells whose transcript measurement is correlated with the variation in IgE level in asthmatics.
