Description: Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is one of cytokines which was found as a B cell differentiation-inducing factor. In these days, IL-6 is generating a lot of attention not only from antibody-producing system but also from assorted physiologically activity such as induction in biosynthesis of acute stage protein in hepatocytes and acceleration of proliferation based on synergism with IL-3. It consistently becomes clear that IL-6 has relevance to pathologic condition. For example, it is reported that growth factor of multiple disease is IL-6, and that myeloma cell itself produces IL-6 and expresses IL-6 receptor. Further, participation of IL-6 to various inflammatory disease and autoimmune disease is suggested.
