Protein Description

Human interleukin 6 (IL-6) is a 26-30 kDa glycoprotein with 183 amino acids in length. IL-6 is a pleiotropic cytokine that plays an important role in the final differentiation of B cells into Ig secreting cells. IL-6 acts on B cells, T cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. IL-6 is expressed by T cells, monocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells and keratinocytes.
