Antigen, CD132

An Interleukin Receptor subunit that was originally discovered as a component of the Interleukin 2 Receptor. It was subsequently found to be a component of several other receptors including the Interleukin 4 Receptor, the Interleukin 7 Receptor, the Interleukin-9 Receptor, the Interleukin-15 Receptor, and the Interleukin-21 Receptor. Mutations in the Gene for the Interleukin Receptor common gamma chain have been associated with X-Linked Combined Immunodeficiency Diseases.
