Interleukin-23 is a heterodimeric, secreted cytokine that
belongs to the IL-12 family of molecules.
Mouse IL-23 is composed of two disulfide-linked chains, p40, a 40-42 kDa,
313 amino acid (aa) glycosylated protein that also contributes to the formation
of IL-12, and p19, a 19-21 kDa, 175 aa polypeptide that also contributes to the
formation of IL-39. It has been found to be principally expressed by activated
macrophages and dendritic cells, where it acts on naïve CD4+ T cells and
promotes the development of T-helper 17 type cells. It is also reported to
drive the formation of osteoblasts from mesenchymal stem cells. The receptor complex for IL-23 is composed of
two chains, IL-23R and IL-12Rb1. Over
the amino acid ranges cited for this product, mouse p19 shares 74% and 88% aa
sequence identity with human and rat p19 respectively, while mouse p40 shares
66% and 93% aa sequence identity with human and rat p40, respectively.
