IL-6 is a potent inducer of the acute phase response and is produced by T cells, macrophages, fibroblasts, endothelial, and other cells (1,2). IL-6 induces proliferation and differentiation and acts on B cells, T cells, thymocytes, among others. IL-6 in concert with TGF-beta is important for developing Th17 responses. IL-6 binds to IL-6Ralpha and through this association induces gp130 homodimerization (1). gp130 homodimerization triggers the Jak/Stat cascade and the SHP2/MAPK (Erk) cascade (1,3,4). IL-6 also forms a complex with an IL-6Ralpha splice variant that is non-membrane associated (3). This IL-6/soluble IL-6Ralpha complex can activate the gp130 signaling pathway on cells that express gp130, but not IL-6Ralpha (3). Research studies have shown that IL-6 may contribute to metastatic breast cancer by increasing expression of proangiogenic VEGF (5).
