Quick Reference


A pro-inflammatory cytokine (cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated serine esterase 8, CTLA-8, 155 aa) produced by T cells that activates NFκB, induces expression of IL-6, IL-8, and ICAM-1 in fibroblasts, and enhances T-cell proliferation. Levels of IL-17 in synovial fluids are significantly higher in rheumatoid arthritis than in osteoarthritis. The receptor (CD217, 866 aa) is a type I transmembrane protein, though a soluble form is also found, and has no homology with other known sequences.
