Recombinant Human Interleukin-11
Megakaryocyte Colony Stimulating Factor (Meg-CSF)
Interleukin-11 (IL11) is encoded by the IL11 gene and is a member of IL6 superfamily, which is distinguished based on its use of the common co-receptor gp130. IL11 is a multifunctional cytokine that was first isolated from bone marrow-derived stromal cells. IL11 receptor activation requires the formation of a complex that contains two IL11 molecules, two molecules of the ligand-binding IL11 RF subunit, and two molecules of the expressed cell signaling G-subunit, gp130. The functions of IL11 are that it directly stimulates the proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells and megakaryocyte progenitor cells, and induces megakaryocyte maturation that results in increased platelet production.
