Interleukin-17 (IL-17) is a 155 amino acid protein that is a disulfide linked, homodimeric, secreted glycoprotein with one N-linked glycosylation site. IL-17 is also referred to as IL-17A. Other members include IL-17B, IL-17C, IL-17D, IL-17E and IL-17F. IL-17 binds to the cell surfacer receptor IL-17R. IL-17 is secreted by a subset of T cells called T-helper 17 (Th-17) cells. IL-23 is thought to mediate the production of IL-17 by Th-17 cells.
