Notes


- IL-17A is expressed in mucosal cells and contributes to intestinal homeostasis but might promote inflammation in excess. IL-17A is mainly produced by Th17 cells. It can also be produced by γδ T cells, natural killer (NK) T cells, macrophages, neutrophils, and eosinophils, but their regulation of IL-17A expression is different. (1)
