IL-20 Information: IL-20 Protein, IL-20 Antibody and IL-20 Gene

IL-20 Gene family

IL-20 Protein

IL-20 protein function

Proinflammatory and angiogenic cytokine that may be involved in epidermal function and psoriasis. Angiogenic and proliferative activities are antagonized by IL10. May act through STAT3. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:16511554}.

IL-20 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Expressed in most tissues and five major cell types: epithelial cells (primarily skin, buccal mucosa, tongue, nasal mucosa, lung, ureter, breast, prostate, fallopian tube, and adrenal gland), myoepithelial cells (mainly prostate), endothelial cells (mainly in small vessels or capillaries), macrophages, and skeletal muscle. Isoform 2 was detected in the lung tissue only.


Up-regulated by UV-B irradiation in epithelial keratinocytes.
