Researchers led by Penn vet uncover the delicate protein balance behind the immune system response

...d concludes that cytokines like IL-27 can promote the ability of these cells to produce IL-10. The effect was dependent on the transcription factors stat1 and STAT3 for IL-27 and on STAT3 for IL-6. Researchers tested this hypothesis by removing the IL-27 receptor from genetically engineered mice. Once...
