Interleukin / Interleukins
Interleukins are a group of cytokines that were first seen to be expressed by leukocytes. The term interleukin describes a variety of polypeptides that act specifically as mediators between leucocytes. More about What are Interleukins.
The Interleukin-1 superfamily & Interleukin-1 receptor family plays critical roles in initiating and promoting the host response to injury or infection, including... More about IL-1 / Interleukin 1 & Receptor.
Interleukin 2, a factor secreted by lectin- or antigen-stimulated T-cells, is a lymphokine that induces the proliferation of responsive T-cells. In addition... More about IL-2 / Interleukin 2 & Receptor.
Members of the interleukin-6 family cytokines utilize one or both of the shared receptor signal transducing subunits, gp130 and LIF receptor (LIFR). Interleukin-6 family cytokines binding of gp130 activates the JAK/STAT signaling pathway, More about IL-6 / Interleukin 6 & Receptor.
Interleukin-10, also known as human cytokine synthesis inhibitory factor (CSIF), is an anti-inflammatory cytokine. IL-10 shares use of IL-10 receptor 2 (IL-10R2) in cell signaling with other members of this family (L-22, IL-26) and interferon-like molecules (limitin, L-28A, IL-28B, IL-29). More about IL-10 / Interleukin 10 & Receptor .
The interleukin-12 family cytokines are key players in the regulation of T cell responses. Interleukin-12 has long been appreciated to play central role in the generation of TH1 cells. More about IL-12 / Interleukin 12 & Receptor.
Cytokines of the interleukin-17 family include IL-17A, IL-17B, IL-17C, IL-17D, IL-17E (or IL-25), and IL-17F. Interleukin-17 family members have been reported to function in numerous immune processes. Most notably, IL-17 is involved in inducing and mediating proinflammatory responses.
