Background: IL-2

IL-2 is a 15-19 kDa secreted O-glycosylated polypeptide that belongs to the gamma c -receptor utilizing family of molecules. It is a monomer that is expressed by a limited number of cell types, including CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, gamma δ T cells, eosinophils and B cells. Its local concentration, plus the stoichiometry of it receptor ( a two or three subunit complex) appears to determine what effects it has on its target cells. It is suggested to both induce NK and CD8+ T cell proliferation, and promote NK cell and CD8+ T cell effector activity. IL-2 also appears to drive CD4+ Fox P3- thymocytes into mature FoxP3+ Tregs, and to direct the conversion of CD4+ T cells into induced Tregs. Finally, IL-2 induces gamma δ T cells to secrete IFN-gamma, and endothelial cells to upregulate endocytic activity. Human and mouse IL-2 share 56 % amino acid sequence identity.
