interleukin-20

(IL-20) One of the IL-10 family of cytokines, produced by monocytes and keratinocytes, and an autocrine factor for keratinocytes. The receptor is up-regulated dramatically in ...

...interleukin-19 ( IL-19 ) A cytokine of the IL-10 family (melanoma differentiation associated protein-like protein, 177 aa), produced by activated monocytes and B cells; induces IL-6 and TNF α ‎ production by monocytes and the production of IL-4, IL-5, IL-10, and IL-13 by activated T-cells; shares its receptor with IL-20 and...

...interleukin-25 ( IL-25 ) A member of the IL-17 family of immunoregulatory cytokines (IL-17E; SF20, a homodimer of 177 aa subunits), produced by Th2 cells. It has a role in allergic inflammation by up-regulating IgG and IgE production, eosinophil levels, and inflammatory responses, through induction of IL-4, IL-5, and...

...cytokines A rather loose category of small proteins (~5–20 kDa) that are released by cells and that affect the behaviour of other cells. Normally taken to include interleukins , lymphokines, chemokines and several related signalling molecules such as tumour necrosis factor and interferons but not hormones or growth factors except perhaps transforming growth factor β ‎ (TGF β ‎). http://www.copewithcytokines.de/cope.cgi A very valuable encylopaedia of cytokines and cells (22 600 entries), created, developed, and maintained by Prof. Dr H...

...interleukin-10 ( IL-10 ) A cytokine (cytokine synthesis inhibiting factor, CSIF, TGIF, a homodimer of 160 aa subunits) produced by Th2 cells, some B cells, and LPS-activated monocytes. IL-10 regulates cytokine production by a range of other cells and is an inhibitor of immune responses. Individuals show marked variation in IL-10 secretion in response to LPS and the variation has a strong genetic component. The IL-10 family (IL-10, IL-19, IL-20, IL-22, IL-24, IL-26, IL-28, and IL-29) is highly pleiotropic and although there are shared receptors and...
