Interleukin 6

Interleukin-6, IL-6
This gene encodes a cytokine that functions in inflammation and the maturation of B cells. In addition, the encoded protein has been shown to be an endogenous pyrogen capable of inducing fever in people with autoimmune diseases or infections. The protein is primarily produced at sites of acute and chronic inflammation, where it is secreted into the serum and induces a transcriptional inflammatory response through interleukin 6 receptor, alpha. The functioning of this gene is implicated in a wide variety of inflammation-associated disease states, including suspectibility to diabetes mellitus and systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Papers on Interleukin-6
Innate immune perturbations, accumulating DAMPs and inflammasome dysregulation: a ticking time bomb in ageing.
Sweet et al., Australia. In Ageing Res Rev, 25 Mar 2015
Herein, we review the evidence that dysregulated inflammasome activation, via altered innate immune cell functions and elevated levels of DAMPs, contributes to the establishment of chronic, low-grade inflammation (characterized by elevated levels of IL-6 and C-reactive protein) and the development of age-related pathological processes.
