The IL-6 (Interleukin 6) gene encodes a protein called interleukin 6, which is a cytokine involved in a wide range of immune and inflammatory responses. IL-6 is produced by a variety of cell types, including T cells, B cells, monocytes, and fibroblasts, and it plays a key role in the activation and differentiation of immune cells. IL-6 also has important roles in the acute phase response, which is the body's response to tissue damage or infection, and in bone metabolism. Dysregulation of the IL-6 pathway has been linked to a number of diseases, including autoimmune disorders, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
