The IL-2 receptor family consists of one or more ligand-selective subunits, and a common γ chain (γc): IL2RG, P31785), though IL-4 and IL-7 receptors can form complexes with other receptor chains. Receptors of this family associate with Jak1 and Jak3, primarily activating Stat5, although certain family members can also activate Stat1, Stat3, or Stat6. Ro264550 has been described as a selective IL-2 receptor antagonist, which binds to IL-2 .
