This item recognizes chicken Interleukin 6 (chIL-6).

Mammalian IL-6 is a multifunctional pro-inflammatory cytokine, which plays a major role in the regulation of immune responses, haematopoiesis and the induction of acute phase responses. The action of IL-6 occurs via the signal transducing receptor chain gp130 and the IL-6 receptor alpha chain is responsible for ligand binding.

IL-6 is produced by a wide variety of cells including B lymphocytes, T lymphocytes, monocytes/macrophages, fibroblasts and endothelial cells and has a widespread cellular effect, including B and T lymphocytes, hepatocytes and cells of the CNS.

Studies relating to the properties of chIL-6 have been limited, but demonstrate that hepatocyte-stimulating factor (HSF), secreted by lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated macrophages, induces fibronectin production in cultured chicken hepatocytes, and that HSF produced by LPS-treated fibroblasts, was neutralized by an antiserum to recombinant HuIL-6 (rHuIL-6). rHuIL-6 has also been shown as biologically active on chicken hepatocytes.

This item neutralizes chicken IL-6 in 7D1 bioassays.

NCBI Summary for IL6
This gene encodes a cytokine that functions in inflammation and the maturation of B cells. In addition, the encoded protein has been shown to be an endogenous pyrogen capable of inducing fever in people with autoimmune diseases or infections. The protein is primarily produced at sites of acute and chronic inflammation, where it is secreted into the serum and induces a transcriptional inflammatory response through interleukin 6 receptor, alpha. The functioning of this gene is implicated in a wide variety of inflammation-associated disease states, including suspectibility to diabetes mellitus and systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

UniProt Comments for IL6
IL6: Cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a potent inducer of the acute phase response. Plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig- secreting cells Involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. It induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation Acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. Also acts as a myokine. It is discharged into the bloodstream after muscle contraction and acts to increase the breakdown of fats and to improve insulin resistance. Genetic variations in IL6 are associated with susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis systemic juvenile (RASJ). An inflammatory articular disorder with systemic- onset beginning before the age of 16. It represents a subgroup of juvenile arthritis associated with severe extraarticular features and occasionally fatal complications. During active phases of the disorder, patients display a typical daily spiking fever, an evanescent macular rash, lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, serositis, myalgia and arthritis. A IL6 promoter polymorphism is associated with a lifetime risk of development of Kaposi sarcoma in HIV-infected men. Belongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
