Il-6 is a cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a potent lymphoid cell growth factor that stimulates the growth and survivability of certain B cells and T cells. It plays an essential role in the final differentiation of b-cells into Ig-secreting cells, it induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth, it induces nerve cells differentiation and in hepatocytes it induces acute phase reactants.
