Cytokine-inducible SH2-containing protein
is a protein
Proteins are biochemical compounds consisting of one or more polypeptides typically folded into a globular or fibrous form, facilitating a biological function. A polypeptide is a single linear polymer chain of amino acids bonded together by peptide bonds between the carboxyl and amino groups of...
that in humans is encoded by the CISH gene
A gene is a molecular unit of heredity of a living organism. It is a name given to some stretches of DNA and RNA that code for a type of protein or for an RNA chain that has a function in the organism. Living beings depend on genes, as they specify all proteins and functional RNA chains...
orthologs have been identified in most mammals with sequenced genomes. CISH controls interleukin-2 signaling, and variations of CISH
with certain SNPs are associated with susceptibility to bacteremia, tuberculosis and malaria.
CISH has been shown to interact
Protein–protein interactions occur when two or more proteins bind together, often to carry out their biological function. Many of the most important molecular processes in the cell such as DNA replication are carried out by large molecular machines that are built from a large number of protein...
Interleukin-2 receptor subunit beta is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IL2RB gene.-Interactions:IL2RB has been shown to interact with HGS, Janus kinase 1, CISH and SHC1.-Further reading:...
and Growth hormone receptor
Growth hormone receptor is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GHR gene. GHR orthologs have been identified in most mammals.-Interactions:...
