Analyte Description

Interleukin 12 p40 (IL-12 p40) is a subunit of interleukin 12 (IL-12) a cytokine that has a broad range of biological activities in the immune system. The complete IL-12 unit aids in the differentiation of naïve T cells into Th1 cells and regulates the activity of natural killer cells. It also stimulates the production of T cells, IFN-γ, and TNF-α. IL-12 inhibits the formation of new blood vessels and may play a role in autoimmune disorders. Overexpression of IL-12 p40 is associated with multiple sclerosis. IL-12 p40 is also a subunit of Interleukin 23.
