      Background InformationInterleukin 12 (IL-12) is an interleukin produced by dendritic cells, macrophages and human B-lymphoblastoid cells (NC-37) and is involved in the differentiation of naive T cells into Th1 cells or Th2 cells. IL-12 is a heterodimeric cytokine comprised of p35 and p40 subunits and is considered a T cell stimulating factor. IL-12 stimulates the production of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) from T and natural killer (NK) cells and reduces IL-4 mediated suppression of IFN-γ. IL-12 can also block the formation of new blood vessels through its induction cascade and is a possible target for anti-cancer drug screening. IL-12 may play a role in autoimmunity by worsening the autoimmune response, due to its key role in induction of Th1 immune responses. Whereas, IL-12 gene knock-out in mice or a treatment of mice with IL-12 specific antibodies seems to ameliorate the diseases.

      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: Cytokine that can act as a growth factor for activated T and NK cells, enhance the lytic activity of NK/lymphokine-activated killer cells, and stimulate the production of IFN-gamma by resting PBMC By similarity.

      Associates with IL23A to form the IL-23 interleukin, an heterodimeric cytokine which functions in innate and adaptive immunity. IL-23 may constitute with IL-17 an acute response to infection in peripheral tissues. IL-23 binds to an heterodimeric receptor complex composed of IL12RB1 and IL23R, activates the Jak-Stat signaling cascade, stimulates memory rather than naive T-cells and promotes production of proinflammatory cytokines. IL-23 induces autoimmune inflammation and thus may be responsible for autoimmune inflammatory diseases and may be important for tumorigenesis.

      SUBUNIT STRUCTURE: Heterodimer with IL12A; disulfide-linked. The heterodimer is known as interleukin IL-12. Heterodimer with IL23A; disulfide-linked. The heterodimer is known as interleukin IL-23. Also secreted as a monomer.


      SEQUENCE SIMILARITIES: Belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. Type 3 subfamily.

      Contains 1 fibronectin type-III domain.

      Contains 1 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.
