The human soluble IL-2 receptor alpha chain (sIL-2Ra) is generated by proteolytic cleavage of the cell-surface bound receptor on activated T cells. The IL-2Ra (also known as CD25) is expressed by early progenitors of the T and B lineage, as well as by activated mature T and B lymphocytes. By itself, CD25 binds IL-2 with low affinity. However, association with CD122 (IL-2 receptor beta chain) and CD132 (common gamma chain) results in formation of the high affinity IL-2R. CD25 plays a role in lymphocyte differentiation and activation/proliferation. sIL-2Ra has been detected in the serum of patients with autoimmune disease and leukemia. Reports have demonstrated that addition of sIL-2Ra can inhibit IL-2-mediated signaling and enhance Th17 responses.
