Synonyms: Interleukin-10,IL-10,Cytokine synthesis inhibitory factor,CSIF
Background: L-10 was originally described as Cytokine Synthesis Inhibitory Factor (CSIF) by virtue of its ability to inhibit cytokine production by Th1 clones. IL-10 shares over 80 % sequence homology with the Epstein-Barr virus protein BCRFI. IL-10 inhibits IFN-γ, TNF-β, and IL-2 production by Th1 clones, inhibits macrophage-mediated IL-1, IL-6, and TNF-α synthesis, suppresses the delayed type hypersensitivity response, stimulates Th2 cell response (which results in elevated antibody production), and promotes mast cell proliferation in combination with IL-4.
