26649511 Findings demonstrated that IL-27 and IL-27R were elevated in multiple sclerosis lesions and that local IL-27 can modulate immune properties of astrocytes and infiltrating immune cells
26282876 The significant expression of IL-27 in TB and the negative influence of IL-27R on T cell function demonstrate the pathway by which this cytokine/receptor pair is detrimental in TB.
24771852 natural sIL-27Ralpha binds rIL-27, inhibits IL-27 binding to its cell surface receptor, and is a potent inhibitor of IL-27 signaling, as shown by its ability to specifically block IL-27-mediated STAT activation, at low molar excess over IL-27.
22936014 Aberrant hypermethylation and reduced expression of IL27RA is associated with myelodysplastic syndromes.
22312192 TCCR/WSX-1 is closely associated with angiogenesis and could serve as a novel therapeutic target in patients with age-related macular degeneration.
21631431 Mutations in the transmembrane and juxtamembrane domains enhance IL27R transforming activity.
20503287 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19549909 Results reveal an interleukin 27-independent function of WSX1 sensitizing natural killer cell-mediated antitumor surveillance.
19386761 These results indicate that humanin protects neurons by binding to a complex or complexes involving CNTFR/WSX-1/gp130.
19258923 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
18003935 IL-27R possesses hematopoietic cell-transforming properties
17703412 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
14764690 WSX-1 together with the cytokine receptor gp130 constitutes a functional signal-transducing receptor for IL-27.
12734330 WSX-1 is essential for transcriptional activation of STAT1 and for augmenting the induction of T-bet expression during initiation of Th1 cell differentiation.
