Scientific information: 
Scientific info: Interleukin-35 (IL-35) is a novel IL-12 family cytokine produced by regulatory T cells (Treg) but not by resting or activated effector T cells (Teff). IL-35 is a heterodimeric protein composed of EBI3 (Epstein-Barr-Virus-induced gene 3) and IL-12a (p35). EBI3 is a downstream target of Foxp3, a transcription factor required for Treg-cell development and function, and thus Treg-cell restriction of IL35 occurs. Regulatory T cells are essential for maintaining self tolerance and preventing autoimmunity, and IL-35 is identified as a molecule that mediates the immune suppression function of Treg-cell. As an inhibitory cytokine, IL-35 induces proliferation of Treg-cell populations but suppresses Th17 cell development. Studies in mice show the absence of either IL-35 chain from Treg-cell reduces the cells' ability to suppress inflammation using an experimental model for inflammatory bowel disease. IL-35 is suggested as a potential target of immunotherapy.
