    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    text type I transmembrane protein, cholesterol enriched membrane microdomains (rafts)
    basic FUNCTION
  • interleukin 6, signal transducer (GP130), needed for IL6R activity and signal transduction of the IL-6 related cytokines mediated by JAK kinases
  • IL6 and IL6ST may enhance pain not only indirectly through their proinflammatory actions but also through a direct action on nociceptors
  • its activation in photoreceptors had potentially a general protective role independent of whether stress was caused by light or genetic mutations
  • shared signal-transducing receptor subunit for the large and important family of interleukin 6-like cytokines
    signaling signal transduction
    a component
  • common transducing component for IL6RA, LIFR, CNTFR, CSF3R (see symbols)
  • component of microdomains rafts
  • heterodimerizing with OSMR
  • quaternary cytokine receptor complex consisting of IL6ST, LIFR, the cytokine Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CNTF), and its alpha receptor (CNTFRA)
    small molecule
  • shared receptor for at least nine cytokines and can signal either as a homodimer or as a heterodimer with Leukemia Inhibitory Factor Receptor (LIFR)
  • MTRNR2L1 inhibits neuronal cell death and dysfunction by binding to a novel IL6-receptor-related receptor(s) on the cell surface involving CNTFR, IL27RA, and IL6ST
  • interacting with Sortilin
  • TRAF5 binds to the signal-transducing receptor IL6ST through the C-terminal TRAF domain and inhibits Th17 development mediated by IL6
  • cell & other
    Other regulated by N-linked glycosylation that is required for the stability but not the signal-transducing function
