CC   -!- FUNCTION: Cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a
CC       potent inducer of the acute phase response. Plays an essential role in
CC       the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells Involved
CC       in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. Acts on B-cells, T-cells,
CC       hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS.
CC       Required for the generation of T(H)17 cells. Also acts as a myokine. It
CC       is discharged into the bloodstream after muscle contraction and acts to
CC       increase the breakdown of fats and to improve insulin resistance. It
CC       induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells
CC       differentiation.
CC   -!- SUBUNIT: Interacts with IL6R (via the N-terminal ectodomain); this
CC       interaction may be affected by IL6R-binding with SORL1, hence
CC       decreasing IL6 cis signaling (PubMed:28265003). Interacts with SORL1
CC       (via the N-terminal ectodomain); this interaction leads to IL6
CC       internalization and lysosomal degradation (PubMed:28265003). May form a
CC       trimeric complex with the soluble SORL1 ectodomain and soluble IL6R
CC       receptor; this interaction might stabilize circulating IL6, hence
CC       promoting IL6 trans signaling (PubMed:28265003).

CC   -!- SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted.
CC   -!- PTM: N- and O-glycosylated. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:1883960}.
CC   -!- POLYMORPHISM: Genetic variations in IL6 may be correlated with bone
CC       mineral density (BMD). Low BMD is a risk factor for osteoporotic
CC       fracture. Osteoporosis is characterized by reduced bone mineral
CC       density, disruption of bone microarchitecture, and the alteration of
CC       the amount and variety of non-collagenous proteins in bone.
CC       Osteoporotic bones are more at risk of fracture.

CC   -!- DISEASE: Rheumatoid arthritis systemic juvenile (RASJ) [MIM:604302]: An
CC       inflammatory articular disorder with systemic onset beginning before
CC       the age of 16. It represents a subgroup of juvenile arthritis
CC       associated with severe extraarticular features and occasionally fatal
CC       complications. During active phases of the disorder, patients display a
CC       typical daily spiking fever, an evanescent macular rash,
CC       lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, serositis, myalgia and arthritis.
CC       {ECO:0000269|PubMed:9769329}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated
CC       with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
CC   -!- DISEASE: Note=A IL6 promoter polymorphism is associated with a lifetime
CC       risk of development of Kaposi sarcoma in HIV-infected men.
CC       {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11001912}.
