Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is a cytokine with many biological functions. Some of its roles include the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells, induction of meloma and plasmacytoma growth, induction of nerve cell differentiation, and in hepatocytes, induction of acute phase reactants. IL-6 is secreted and is N- and O-glycosylated post translationally. Genetic variations in IL-6 can be correlated with bone mineral density and low bone mineral density is a risk factor for osteoporosis. Defects in IL-6 are associated with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and at least one polymorphism in IL-6 makes HIV-infected men susceptible to Kaposi sarcoma which is a relatively rare malignant tumour.
