IL-6R

IL-6R

Interleukin-6 Receptor (IL-6R) is a multifunctional factor interleukin which functions by binding to a high-affinity receptor complex consisting of two membrane glycoproteins. The two components are a signal-transducing gp130 and a component receptor that binds IL-6 with low affinity, as known as IL-6R alpha. It interacts with Interleukin 6 and ciliary neurotrophic factor. Soluble interleukin-6 receptor plays a role in immunoregulation and cellular processes.
