Detection of IL‑27 in Human PBMCs by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMCs) either (A) untreated (light orange filled histogram) or (B) treated with PMA and Recombinant Human IL-2 (Catalog # 202-IL, dark orange filled histogram) were stained with Mouse Anti-Human IL-27 Fluorescein-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # IC25261F) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # IC003F, open histogram). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (Catalog # FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

IL-27 is a non-covalent heterodimeric molecule that belongs to the IL-6/IL-12 family of long type I cytokines. It is composed of EBI3 (EBV-induced gene 3), a 33-34 kDa glycoprotein that is related to the p40 subunit of IL-12 and IL-23, and p28, the 28-30 kDa glycoprotein that is related to the p35 chain of IL-12. The human EBI3 gene encodes a 229 amino acid (aa) precursor that contains a 20 aa signal peptide and 209 aa mature protein. The mature region contains two potential N-linked glycosylation sites, two fibronectin type III domains, and two pairs of conserved cysteine residues with a WSXWS-like motif that places the molecule in the hematopoietin receptor family. Although p40, the EBI3 counterpart in IL-12, is known to form homodimers, there is no evidence to date that EBI3 also homodimerizes.However, EBI3 is known to heterodimerize with the p35 subunit of IL-12, generating the cytokine IL-35. Human EBI3 is 61% aa identical to mouse EBI3. The human p28 gene encodes a 243 aa precursor that contains a 28 aa signal sequence and 215 aa mature region. The mature region is characterized by the presence of four alpha -helices, placing it in the IL-6 family of helical cytokines. Human p28 is 70% aa identical to mouse p28. IL-27 is expressed by monocytes, endothelial cells and dendritic cells. IL-27 binds to and signals through a heterodimeric receptor complex composed of WSX-1 (TCCR) and gp130. Evidence suggests IL-27 interacts only with WSX-1. p28 also heterodimerizes with CLF1 and signals through the IL-6R:gp130 complex. IL-27 has both anti- and proinflammatory properties. As an anti‑inflammatory, IL-27 seems to induce a general negative feedback program that limits T and NK-T cell activity. At the onset of infection, IL-27 induces an IL‑12 receptor on naïve CD4+ T cells, making them susceptible to subsequent IL-12 activity that generates Th1 cells at the expense of Th2 and Th17 cells. Finally, IL-27 upregulates both MHC-II and chemokine (CXCL9; CXCL10) expression on vascular endothelium, suggesting a role for IL-27 in vascular inflammation.
