IL-2, TCGF, lymphokine, IL 2, IL2
Interleukin 2 (IL2), also known as T Cell Growth Factor, is an immunomodulatory factor produced by certain subsets of T lymphocytes. This lymphokine is useful in promoting long term growth of activated T cells, B lymphocytes, lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells, monocytes, macrophages and oligodendrocytes. Interleukin 2 affects the activation and proliferation of NK cells, induces gamma-interferon and B cell growth factor secretion, and modulates the expression of the IL2 receptor. IL2 also functions as a growth inhibitor in certain neoplastic cells. Multiple biological functions of IL2 have been described including B cell growth and differentiation. Interleukin 2 has been isolated from a number of cell types.
