IL-17E, or IL-25, was first identified as an IL-17 family member on the basis of sequence homology. It was originally believed to be a Th2 cytokine based on the detection of mRNA transcripts in polarized Th2 cells, but expression was later observed in epithelial cells, eosinophils, and mast cells. Studies have confirmed the role of IL-17E as a potent inducer of type 2 immune responses. IL-17E signaling induces the differentiation of CD4+ T cells towards the Th2 lineage and upregulates expression of Th2 cytokines such as IL-4, IL-5, and IL-13. Administration of IL-17E also promotes symptoms of allergic asthma, such as eosinophil infiltration, airway hyperreactivity, and high circulating levels of IgE. IL-17E binds to IL-17BR, a receptor shared with IL-17B, and activates NF-kappa B pathways.
