Genes

IL3

Interleukin 3 (IL3) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a growth promoting cytokine. The protein maintains the proliferation of many hematopoietic cell types. The protein also plays a role in cell growth, differentiation, and apoptosis. Fusions, missense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift insertions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.
