Interleukin (IL)-6, leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and IL-11 belong to the same family of cytokines whose receptors utilize gp130 as the signalling molecule. We have investigated the expression of the IL-11 receptor, IL-11Ralpha, protein in the human endometrium in vivo and the effects of IL-6, LIF and IL-11 on the production of metalloproteinases (MMPs) and cytokines by cultured endometrial epithelial and stromal cells. Immunostaining showed that IL-11Ralpha was expressed in both epithelial… CONTINUE READING
