The protein encoded by this gene is a proinflammatorycytokine. This cytokine can induce the IFN-gamma production of Tcells. The combination of this cytokine and IL12 has been shown toinhibit IL4 dependent IgE and IgG1 production, and enhance IgG2aproduction of B cells. IL-18 binding protein (IL18BP) canspecifically interact with this cytokine, and thus negativelyregulate its biological activity.
