Chemical Leukemia Inhibitory Factor Receptor alpha Subunit

Name Leukemia Inhibitory Factor Receptor alpha Subunit
Equivalent Terms Antigen, CD118 | Antigens, CD118 | CD118 Antigen | CD118 Antigens | LIF Receptor alpha Subunit
Definition A receptor subunit that combines with CYTOKINE RECEPTOR GP130 to form the dual specificity receptor for LEUKEMIA INHIBITORY FACTOR and ONCOSTATIN M. The subunit is also a component of the CILIARY NEUROTROPHIC FACTOR RECEPTOR. Both membrane-bound and secreted isoforms of the receptor subunit exist due to ALTERNATIVE SPLICING of its mRNA. The secreted isoform is believed to act as an inhibitory receptor, while the membrane-bound form is a signaling receptor.
