IL22

IL22

A gene on chromosome 12q15 that encodes interleukin-22, a cytokine which plays an uncertain role in the inflammatory response. Il22 is also a less preferred gene symbol for what is now designated as IL17D, see there.

The expression of other Th1/Th17-related soluble factors (IL22, NFKB1, IL23A, STAT3, CCR5, IL17RA, CX3CL1, CXCL12, and CXCL5) was also assessed by RT-PCR, and the amount of mRNA calculated as above described.
Group 1 producing IFN gamma, Group 2 producing IL5 and IL13, Group 3 producing IL17 and/or IL22. NH cells, nuocytes and lh2 cells are able to produce IL5 and IL13 in response to IL25 OR IL33.

In addition, interferon-gamma (IFN-[gamma]) has been shown to be elevated in lesion effluent [18], and suppression of IL22 [19] along with the IL12/23 pathways is thought to play a role in pathogenesis [20, 21].
As shown in Figure 3, the upregulation of IL-1[beta], IL-6, IL-8, IL-17A, IL22, IL-23, and TNF-[alpha] expression was markedly decreased in the groups treated with acitretin and WCR.
(37) We could not find relevant information in field literature about IL22 gene polymorphisms and immunity against HBV, so comparing our results with other studies was not possible but there are several reports on IL-22 gene variants and other diseases.
These findings suggest that IL22 has a protective role for the development of antigen-induced airway inflammation in mice during the effector phase.

Nearby genes implicated as possibly playing a role in ulcerative colitis include the ring finger protein 186 (RNF186), OTU domain containing 3 (OTUD3), and phospholipase A2, group IIE (PLA2G2E) - genes on chromosome 1p36, and the interferon, gamma (IFNG), interleukin 26 (IL26), and interleukin 22 (IL22) genes on chromosome 12q15 that play an important role in inflammation.
The activation of Th17 cells results in a large amount of inflammatory cytokine production, such as IL17A, IL17F, IL21, IL22, and CCL20 [11, 32].
