Test Code IL10R Seq IL10RA/ IL10RB Gene Sequencing

Important Note

Test availability is limited to Seattle Children’s Hospital and University of Washington patients.

Clinical System Name

IL10RA/ IL10RB Gene Sequencing


IL10R, CD210, CD210a, CDW210A, HIL-10R, IL-10R1, CDW210B, CRF2-4, CRFB4, D21S58, D21S66, IL-10R2


IL10RA and IL10RB genes encode the receptors for interleukin 10. Both receptors are structurally related to interferon receptors. These have been shown to mediate the immunosuppressive signal of interleukin 10, and thus inhibit the synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines. These receptors are reported to promote survival of progenitor myeloid cells through the insulin receptor substrate-2/PI 3-kinase/AKT pathway

Reference Range

Interpretive report will be provided


Method: The 14 exons of the IL10RA and IL10RB genes, including exon/intron boundaries, will be amplified from genomic DNA by PCR and sequenced bidirectionally using dye-terminator chemistry



Limitations: Mutations in the promoter region, large deletions, large duplications, or rare recombinant mutations may not be detected by this method.
