Function Cytokine (PubMed:8096327, PubMed:8097324). Inhibits inflammatory cytokine production (PubMed:8096327). Synergizes with IL2 in regulating interferon-gamma synthesis (PubMed:8096327). May be critical in regulating inflammatory and immune responses (PubMed:8096327, PubMed:8097324). Positively regulates IL31RA expression in macrophages.
Involvement in disease Allergic rhinitis
Sequence similarities Belongs to the IL-4/IL-13 family.
Cellular localization Secreted.
