What is IL-17F?

Interleukin 17F (IL-17F) is a homodimer composed of two IL-17F subunits. IL17-F is a member of the IL-17A protein family. This proinflammatory cytokine is produced by activated Th17 (T helper 17) cells and certain cells of the innate immune system. Th17 cells play an important role in protection against bacteria and fungi. IL-17F contributes to the pathogenesis of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, for example, psoriasis.
