Description

Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is a prototypic member of the IL-6 superfamily of cytokines. IL-6 is secreted by a variety of lymphoid and non-lymphoid cells including T cells, B cells, monocytes, fibroblasts, hepatocytes, endothelial cells, keratinocytes, etc. Mature Rat IL-6 is a 187 aa residue protein. At the protein sequence level, there is approximately 39% identity between rat and human IL-6, and 87% identity between mouse and rat IL-6. The production of IL-6 can be induced by numerous signals such as mitogenic or antigenic stimulation, lipopolysaccharides, calcium ionophores, cytokines, and viruses.

IL-6 induces signaling through a cell surface heterodimeric receptor complex composed of a ligand binding subunit (IL-6 R) and a subunit (gp130) that acts as the universal signal-transducing element for all IL-6 family cytokines. IL-6 activity is essential for the transition from acute inflammation to either acquired immunity or chronic inflammatory disease. One of the most important mechanism is that IL-6 is a key factor that reciprocally regulates Th17 and Foxp3+ Treg differentiation by inhibition of TGF-β induced Foxp3 and induction of RORγt, a Th17 lineage-specific transcription factor.

Elevated serum IL-6 levels have been observed in a number of pathological conditions, including bacterial and viral infections, trauma, autoimmune diseases, inflammations and malignancies.
