General Information

Biological Significance The function of IL4 is mediated by binding to receptors expressed on target cells. Receptors exist on freshly prepared B and T lymphocytes and macrophages, as well as on various cell lines including lymphoid cells, mast cell lines, a variety of other hematopoietic cell lines, fibroblasts and stromal cell lines. On T and B cells, receptors are present in low numbers (approximately 400), which are reported to be upregulated by IL2 and IL4. IL4 is produced by a particular subset of T helper cells, the TH2 cells. These cells tend to make a specific set of lymphokines including IL4, IL5, IL6, IL10, IL13 and GMCSF and fail to produce IL2, IFN gamma, and lymphotoxin (TNF beta). Apart from T cells, it has been shown that mast cells can produce IL4. IL4 exerts numerous effects on various hematopoietic cell types. On B cells, IL4 promotes immunological class switching to IgE and IgG1 isotypes and upregulates MHC class II and CD23 expression. It can promote survival, growth, and differentiation of both T and B lymphocytes, mast cells, and endothelial cells. In addition, IL4 can inhibit the production of TNF, IL1, and IL6 by macrophages.
