    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in growth control and terminal differentiation in cancer cells, negative regulator of melanoma progression
  • functions potentially during an inflammatory response in the skin by inhibiting the proliferation and migration of keratinocytes
  • specifically inhibits cancer cell growth through the induction of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis
  • suppressed mRNA expression of vascular endothelial growth factor and platelet-derived growth factor and subsequently decreased the level of cell migration in response to H(2)O(2)
  • suppress tumor progression in a variety of human cancers
  • cytokine with potent antitumour and tumour-suppressive activity which functions through its receptor (IL22R)
  • plays a profound role in suppressing tumour lymphangiogenesis, thereby, reducing the likelihood of cancer metastasis via the lymphatic route
  • IL24 and IL19 are involved in host defence against bacteria and fungi, tissue remodelling and wound healing
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, differentiation

    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • MAPK14 is a regulator of IL24 expression and determine interference with destabilization mediated by the 3prime UTR of IL24 mRNA as mode of action
  • STAT6 and JUN proteins were found to physically cooperate with each other and upregulated IL24 gene transcription
  • IL24 reduces VSMC calcification by inhibiting the WNT/CTNNB1 pathway
  • SIGMAR1 is a key initial mediator of IL24 induction of cancer-specific killing
