Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence showing that the gene product to be a target of genes previously linked to ageing
Description

A crucial component in IL2 signal transduction, IL2RG could be related to the age-associated functional decline in the immune system [369].
