Gene: Il6 (interleukin 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Il6
Name: interleukin 6
Description: Exhibits cytokine activity and interleukin-6 receptor binding activity; involved in several processes, including cellular response to hormone stimulus, negative regulation of cellular metabolic process, and positive regulation of cell communication; localizes to the cytoplasm and extracellular space; used to study several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, congestive heart failure, disseminated intravascular coagulation, fatty liver disease, and hypertension (multiple); biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple), asthma, auditory system disease (multiple), congestive heart failure, and lung disease (multiple); orthologous to human IL6 (interleukin 6); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-6 signaling pathway; interleukin-23 signaling pathway; interleukin-27 signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; (+)-sesamin; (-)-cotinine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Ifnb2; IL-6; ILg6; Interleukin 6 (interferon beta 2); Interleukin 6 (interferon, beta 2); interleukin-6
