Interleukin 7 receptor
The interleukin 7 receptor is a protein found on the surface of cells. It is made up of two different smaller protein chains - i.e. it is a heterodimer, and consists of two subunits, interleukin 7 receptor-α (CD127) and common-γ chain receptor (CD132). The common-γ chain receptors is shared with various cytokines, including interleukin-2, interleukin 4, interleukin 9, and interleukin 15. Interleukin-7 receptor is expressed on various cell types, including naive and memory T cells and many others.
