  • two fibronectin type-III domains
  • a box 1 motif required for JAK interaction and/or activation
  • a WSXWS motif necessary for proper protein folding and thereby efficient intracellular transport and cell-surface receptor binding

    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
  • type I membrane protein
  • basic FUNCTION
  • interleukin 3, interleukin 5 receptor common subunit beta (high affinity)
  • critical for the activation of both the JAK/STAT (JAK2, STAT5) and MAP kinase pathways
  • involved in LYN binding
  • plays an important role in preventing the ligand-receptor complexes from rapidly dissociating
  • plays a crucial role in EPO-mediated non-hematopoietic effects
  • may play an integrative role in the EPO signaling-mediated activation of endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) in endothelial cells (ECs)
  • may play an important role in the beneficial effects of EPO against OXLDL-elicited dysfunction of macrophage foam cells

    signaling signal transduction
  • cytokine and chemokine mediated signaling pathway
  • a component
  • heterodimer of an alpha and a beta chain
  • the beta chain is common to the IL3, IL5 and GM-CSF receptors
    small molecule
  • engagement of IL-3 receptor beta common (IL-3R beta c) contributes to both IL-3- and VEGF-induced Rac1 activation, cell migration and in vitro tube-like structure formation as shown by the expression of the dominant-negative IL-3R beta c construct (Delta455)
  • NFKB1 activation by CSF2RB is dependent on TNFR-associated factor 6 (TRAF6) and association of TRAF6 with CSF2RB requires a consensus-binding motif found in other molecules known to interact with TRAF6
  • plays a crucial role in the nonhematopoietic effects of EPO (PMD: 26101463)
  • colocalized and interacted with EPO receptor (EPOR) in macrophages
