Interleukin-10 is a pleiotropic cytokine playing an important role as a regulator of lymphoid and myeloid cell function. Due to the ability of IL-10 to block cytokine synthesis and several accessory cell functions of macrophages, this cytokine is a potent suppressor of the effector functions of macrophages, T-cells and NK cells. In addition, IL-10 participates in regulating proliferation and differentiation of B-cells, mast cells and thymocytes. Based on its primary structure, IL-10 is a member of the four -helix bundle family of cytokines. In solution IL-10 is a homodimer with an apparent molecular mass of 39 kDa. Although it contains an N-linked glycosylation site, it lacks detectable carbohydrates.
Recombinant protein expressed in E. coli thus retains all known biological activities. The IL-10 gene is located on chromosome 1 and is present as a single copy in the genome. The murine IL-10 exhibits strong DNA and amino acid sequence homology to the human IL-10 and an open reading frame in the Epstein- Barr virus genome, BCRF1 which shares many of the cellular cytokine's biological activities and may therefore play a role in the host-virus interaction.
Aberrant functioning of this gene is associated with numerous immune disorders including graft-versus-host disease, and increased susceptibility to HIV-1 infection and rheumatoid arthritis.
