The soluble interleukin-6 receptor and related proteins.
Kiel, Germany. In Best Pract Res Clin Endocrinol Metab, 31 Oct 2015
Interleukin-6 binds to an interleukin-6 receptor, and then associates with a dimer of the ubiquitously expressed gp130 receptor subunit, which initiates intracellular signaling.
The IL-6/gp130/STAT3 signaling axis: recent advances towards specific inhibition.
Kiel, Germany. In Curr Opin Immunol, Jun 2015
However, a plethora of studies in the last decade has convincingly shown that only signaling via the soluble IL-6R (trans-signaling) accounts for the deleterious effects of IL-6, whereas classic signaling via the membrane-bound receptor is essential for the regenerative and anti-bacterial effects of IL-6 (classic signaling).
Metalloproteinases and their natural inhibitors in inflammation and immunity.
Toronto, Canada. In Nat Rev Immunol, 2013
Together with their endogenous inhibitors TIMPs (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases), these enzymes regulate signalling downstream of the tumour necrosis factor receptor and the interleukin-6 receptor, as well as that downstream of the epidermal growth factor receptor and Notch, which are all pertinent for inflammatory responses.
