IL6:sIL6R binds sgp130 (R-HSA-1067676) [Homo sapiens]


Soluble gp130 binds to circulating IL6:sIL6R, preventing binding to gp130 on the plasma membrane, thereby specifically inhibiting IL-6 trans-signaling (Jostock et al. 2001). This protein is to enter clinical development for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. It can be anticipated that less beneficial activities of IL-6 will be blocked by soluble gp130 than by global blockade of IL-6 with neutralizing monoclonal antibodies to IL-6 or IL-6R
