Gene: Il6 (interleukin 6) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Il6
Name: interleukin 6
Description: Exhibits cytokine activity and interleukin-6 receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cellular response to cytokine stimulus; and positive regulation of type 2 immune response. Localizes to the external side of plasma membrane and extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); gastrointestinal system cancer (multiple); glucose metabolism disease (multiple); and periodontal disease (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; gut; liver; thymus; and uterus. Orthologous to human IL6 (interleukin 6).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: B-cell hybridoma growth factor; Il-6; interleukin HP-1; interleukin-6
