Interleukin-27 (IL-27) is a heterodimeric cytokine belonging to the IL-12 family that is composed of two subunits, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-induced gene 3 (EBI3) (also known as IL-27B) and IL27-p28 (known as IL-30). IL-27 is produced by antigen-presenting cells. IL-27 plays an important function in regulating the activity of B and T lymphocytes. The effects of IL-27 are eliciting by its interaction with a specific cell surface receptor complex composed of two proteins known as IL-27R and gp130. The gene symbol IL27 refers to the IL-30 subunit of IL-27.
