Background

IL-5 (Interleukin-5) is a secreted cytokine that is expressed as a covalent dimer. It is produced by activated Th2 cells, eosinophils, mast cells, and iNKT cells and promotes eosinophilic and basophilic differentiation and activation. IL-5 signals through a receptor complex containing IL-5 R alpha and the Common beta Chain/CD131 on eosinophils and basophils. Naturally occurring soluble forms of IL-5 R alpha retain the ability to bind IL-5 and limit its bioavailability.
