Background: IL-Y (IL-12p40/IL-27p28)

IL-Y is a new member of the IL-12 cytokine family consists of IL-12p40 and IL-27p28 subunits (1, 2, 3). The mature mouse IL-12p40 subunit contains 312 amino acids and shares 66% and 93%amino acid (aa) identity with human and rat IL-12p40, respectively. The mature mouse IL-27p28 subunit contains 205 amino acids and shares 70% and 89% aa identity with human and rat IL-27p28, respectively. IL-Y inhibits the differentiation and inflammatory responses of Th1 and Th17 cells while promoting expansion of IL-10 and Foxp3 expressing regulatory T cells (3). Treatment of prediabetic non-obese diabetic mice using adenovirus vector expressing IL-Y prevents the onset of hyperglycemia with reduced expression of inflammatory mediators such as IFN-gamma. IL-Y significantly stimulates a unique cytokine and chemokine expression profile as well as to activate STAT3, in part, through a pathway involving WSX-1 (2).
