27166550 Selective expression of IFNlambdaR1 was considered to be a plus point towards the targeted anti-viral activity of IFNlambdas but artificial control on its expression will surely make IFNlambdas a better drug with enhanced activity.
26400298 Polymorphism within the IL-28R1, but not in IL-28B, is associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia and lower urinary tract symptoms in Chinese.
25911176 expression of IL-28RA mRNA may be correlated with the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus
24752298 IFN-lambda receptor 1 expression is induced in chronic hepatitis C and correlates with the IFN-lambda3 genotype and with nonresponsiveness to IFN-alpha therapies.
24510368 This study is the first to show the activation of a type III interferon response in low-risk human papillomavirus positive cervical cells and suggests that the lack of this response may be related to lesion progression.
24438680 IL28RA polymorphism (rs10903035) seems to be implicated in the glucose homeostasis because AA genotype increases the likelihood of IR, but this association was different depending on hepatic fibrosis and HCV genotype.
24409098 Epigenetic reprogramming of IFNLR1-mediated response potentiates antiviral activity and suppresses tumor growth.
24144988 Results show that the distribution of IL10RB and IL28RA genotypes among the Hepatitis C virus-infected and control groups did not differ significantly.
23565619 The rs12980275 AG/GG genotype and rs10903035 G allele remained independently associated with early pegylated interferon and ribavirin failure of hepatitis C in hepatitis C/HIV coinfected patients.
22891284 Plasmacytoid dendritic cells are major producers of IFN-lambda2 (a type III interferon) in response to viral stimulation and also express functional receptors for this cytokine.
22386267 No consistent association is found between IL28RA and multiple sclerosis in a Basque-Spanish population.
21742059 two SNPs in IL28RA are correlated with susceptibility to HCV infection and spontaneous viral clearance, which implicates a primary role of IL28RA in the outcomes of HCV infection
20953190 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20934432 IFN-lambdaR1 consists of two distinct domains having fibronectin type III topology.
20237496 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20057073 Although the IFN-lambda1(Bac)-IFN-lambda1R1 and IFN-lambda1(Ins)-IFN-lambda1R1 complexes differed only in the nature of the expression system used for the ligand, their crystallization conditions and crystal forms were quite different
19798076 study supports that IFN-lambdas do not influence every type of cell and that membrane-associated variant IFN-lambda R1 expression is not sufficient to ensure cellular sensitivity toward these cytokines.

19240061 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16819289 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16819289 Results suggested that the g.32349 G>A polymorphism of IL-28RA might be associated with susceptibility to allergic rhinitis.
15166220 interleukin (IL)-28 receptor tyrosine residues have roles in antiviral and antiproliferative activity of IL-29/interferon-lambda 1
12483210 distinct receptor complex that is utilized by all three IFN-lambda proteins for signaling and is composed of two subunits, a receptor designated CRF2-12 (also designated as IFN-lambdaR1) and a second subunit, CRF2-4 (also known as IL-10R2)
12469119 IL-28 and IL-29 interact with a heterodimeric class II cytokine receptor that consisted of IL-10 receptor beta (IL-10Rbeta) and an orphan class II receptor chain, designated IL-28Ralpha.
