Background: Common gamma Chain/IL-2 R gamma
The gamma chain of the high affinity functional human IL-2 receptor complex belongs to the hematopoietin receptor family. IL-2 R gamma is a 369 amino acid residue protein consisting of a 22 residue signal sequence, a 232 residue extracellular domain, a 29 residue transmembrane domain and an 86 residue cytoplasmic domain. Although IL-2 R gamma by itself does not bind IL-2 with any appreciable affinity, it is required for IL-2 receptor signaling. Besides IL-2, the gamma chain has been shown to be a component of the functional receptor complexes for IL-4, IL-7, IL-9 and IL-15. It has been proposed that IL-2 R gamma be designated the common gamma chain ( gamma c). The site of molecular defects in X-linked SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency) has now been mapped to the IL-2 R gamma gene.
