A pleiotropic cytokine, IL6 Protein is produced in response when there are tissue damage and infections identified. Almost every cell type is associated with the production of the cytokine IL6 Protein such as fibroblasts, keratinocytes, vascular endothelial cells, mast cells, macrophages, dendritic cells, and others. After the cells target a specific receptor, IL6 initiates the process involving signalling events associated with the STAT3 activation pathway. The activation leads to the association with the promotion of transcription of multiple downstream genes with the cellular signalling process and includes cytokines, receptors, adaptor proteins, and protein kinases.
IL6 Protein combines with the transforming growth factor beta which induces differentiation of naive CD4 cells into Th17 cells important for the defence at the mucosal sites against pathogens. Majorly, IL-6 is a potent pyrogenic cytokine that plays a vital role in organizing lymphocyte trafficking for the lymphoid organs when in fever situations.
IL6 Protein in addition to its role where it modulates immune responses, IL-6 has been implicating several virus infection progressions. Leading to becoming the most important cytokine along with IL-1 and TNF-alpha during an infection. The IL6 Protein has shown itself essentially with the influenza virus by effective regulation of T cell response, tissue remodeling, promoting lung repair, phagocytic macrophage activities, and preventing virus apoptosis in lung epithelial cells with the regulation of IgG isotope switching.
Genetically engineered rabies virus carrying the IL-6 gene in the genomic backbone was considered for the experimentation, where the relevance of IL6 Protein during infections was noted. The normal infected mice showed high resistance, yet the one engineered had increased levels of specific cells and antibodies circulating, intensifying the innate immune response via the brain.
The IL6 Protein was confirmed via in vitro experiments to hold the ability of cytokines to repress the replication of Classical Swine Flu Virus (CSFV). Similarly, for Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), the antiviral effect of the IL6 Protein was described as the direct ability to suppress the replication of the virus within the body during in vitro studies.
There are several pieces of evidence supporting the significance of IL6 Protein during viral infections. Right now there are a lot of questions regarding finding the potential of IL6 Protein with respect to viruses out there, and further work is required to clarify and state the exact role of IL6 Protein during virus invasion.
IL6 Protein has diverse biological functions and roles that are debatable with virus infections and mounting of the right immune response.
