background

The multifunctional factor interleukin 6 (IL-6) exerts its activities through binding to a high-affinity receptor complex consisting of two membrane glycoproteins: an 80 kDa component receptor that binds IL-6 with low affinity (IL-6R alpha) and a signal-transducing component of 130 kDa (gp130) that does not bind IL-6 by itself, but is required for high-affinity binding of IL-6 by the complex. Both components of the receptor complex, IL-6R alpha and gp130 have been cloned, sequenced, and expressed.

molecular weight

The protein has a predicted MW of 41.4 kDa. Due to glycosylation, the protein migrates to 65-78 kDa based on Tris-Bis PAGE result.

Function
FUNCTION: Part of the receptor for interleukin 6. Binds to IL6 with low affinity, but does not transduce a signal (PubMed:28265003). Signal activation necessitate an association with IL6ST. Activation leads to the regulation of the immune response, acute-phase reactions and hematopoiesis (PubMed:30995492, PubMed:31235509). The interaction with membrane-bound IL6R and IL6ST stimulates 'classic signaling', the restricted expression of the IL6R limits classic IL6 signaling to only a few tissues such as the liver and some cells of the immune system. Whereas the binding of IL6 and soluble IL6R to IL6ST stimulates 'trans-signaling'. Alternatively, 'cluster signaling' occurs when membrane-bound IL6:IL6R complexes on transmitter cells activate IL6ST receptors on neighboring receiver cells (Probable). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28265003, ECO:0000269|PubMed:31235509, ECO:0000305|PubMed:30995492}.; FUNCTION: [Isoform 1]: Signaling via the membrane-bound IL6R is mostly regenerative and anti-inflammatory (Probable). Drives naive CD4(+) T cells to the Th17 lineage, through 'cluster signaling' by dendritic cells (By similarity). {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P22272, ECO:0000305|PubMed:30995492}.; FUNCTION: [Isoform 2]: Soluble form of IL6 receptor (sIL6R) that acts as an agonist of IL6 activity (PubMed:21990364). The IL6:sIL6R complex (hyper-IL6) binds to IL6ST/gp130 on cell surfaces and induces signaling also on cells that do not express membrane-bound IL6R in a process called IL6 'trans-signaling'. sIL6R is causative for the pro-inflammatory properties of IL6 and an important player in the development of chronic inflammatory diseases (PubMed:21990364). In complex with IL6, is required for induction of VEGF production (PubMed:12794819). Plays a protective role during liver injury, being required for maintenance of tissue regeneration (By similarity). 'Trans-signaling' in central nervous system regulates energy and glucose homeostasis (By similarity). {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P22272, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12794819, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21990364}.; FUNCTION: [Soluble interleukin-6 receptor subunit alpha]: Soluble form of IL6 receptor (sIL6R) that acts as an agonist of IL6 activity (PubMed:21990364). The IL6:sIL6R complex (hyper-IL6) binds to IL6ST/gp130 on cell surfaces and induces signaling also on cells that do not express membrane-bound IL6R in a process called IL6 'trans-signaling'. sIL6R is causative for the pro-inflammatory properties of IL6 and an important player in the development of chronic inflammatory diseases (PubMed:21990364).

Subellular location
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: [Isoform 1]: Cell membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P22272}; Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000255}.; SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: [Isoform 2]: Secreted {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28060820}.; SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: [Soluble interleukin-6 receptor subunit alpha]: Secreted {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28060820}.
Tissues
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: [Isoform 2]: Expressed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and weakly found in urine and serum. 1%-20% of the total sIL6R in plasma is generated by alternative splicing (PubMed:28060820). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28060820}.
Structure
SUBUNIT: Component of a hexamer of two molecules each of IL6, IL6R and IL6ST; first binds to IL6 to associate with the signaling subunit IL6ST (PubMed:12829785, PubMed:28265003). Interacts (via N-terminal ectodomain) with SORL1; this interaction may affect IL6-binding to IL6R, hence decrease IL6 'classic-signaling' (PubMed:28265003). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:12829785, ECO:0000269|PubMed:28265003}.; SUBUNIT: [Isoform 2]: Also interacts with SORL1; this interaction leads to soluble IL6R internalization. May form a trimeric complex with the soluble SORL1 ectodomain and circulating IL6 receptor; this interaction might stabilize circulating IL6, hence promote IL6 'trans-signaling,. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28265003}.; SUBUNIT: [Soluble interleukin-6 receptor subunit alpha]: Also interacts with SORL1; this interaction leads to soluble IL6R internalization. May form a trimeric complex with the soluble SORL1 ectodomain and circulating IL6 receptor; this interaction might stabilize circulating IL6, hence promote IL6 'trans-signaling,. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28265003}.
Post-translational modification
PTM: A short soluble form is released from the membrane by proteolysis (PubMed:26876177). The sIL6R is formed mostly by limited proteolysis of membrane-bound receptors, a process referred to as ectodomain shedding, but is also directly secreted from the cells after alternative mRNA splicing (PubMed:26876177, PubMed:28060820). mIL6R is cleaved by the proteases ADAM10 and ADAM17 (PubMed:26876177, PubMed:28060820). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:26876177, ECO:0000269|PubMed:28060820}.; PTM: Glycosylated. Glycosylation is dispensable for transport, signaling, and cell-surface turnover. Glycosylation at Asn-55 is a protease-regulatory exosite. Glycosylation is required for ADAM17-mediated proteolysis. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28060820}.
