Interleukin (IL)-23 is a heterodimeric cytokine composed of a unique p19 subunit, and a common p40 subunit shared with IL-12. IL-12 is important for the development of T helper (Th)1 cells that are essential for host defense and tumor suppression. In contrast, IL-23 does not promote the development of interferon-γ–producing Th1 cells, but is one of the essential factors required for the expansion of a pathogenic CD4+ T cell population, which is characterized by the production of IL-17, IL-17F… 

Figures from this paper

Anti-IL-23 therapy inhibits multiple inflammatory pathways and ameliorates autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
TLDR
Treatment with anti-IL-23p19 effectively inhibited multiple inflammatory pathways that are critical for driving CNS autoimmune inflammation and prevented subsequent disease relapse.
Regulation of Protective and Pathogenic Th17 Responses
TLDR
The protective and pathogenic functions of Th17 in host defense and inflammatory diseases are reviewed.
IL-25 regulates Th17 function in autoimmune inflammation
TLDR
It is shown that IL-25 also regulates the development of autoimmune inflammation mediated by IL-17–producing T cells, and plays opposing roles in the pathogenesis of organ-specific autoimmunity.
Development, cytokine profile and function of human interleukin 17–producing helper T cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IL-23 and IL-1β induced the development of human and mouse TH-17 cells expressing IL-17A,IL-17F, IL-22, Il-26, interferon-γ, the chemokine CCL20 and transcription factor RORγt, and that human TH- 17 cells may regulate innate immunity in epithelial cells.
Interleukin 18–independent engagement of interleukin 18 receptor-α is required for autoimmune inflammation
TLDR
IL-18 and TH1 cells are dispensable, whereas IL-18Rα and IL-17-producing T helper cells are required, for autoimmune central nervous system inflammation.
T-bet is a critical determinant in the instability of the IL-17-secreting T-helper phenotype.
TLDR
It is shown that T-bet is a critical negative regulator of the IL-23-primed T-cell phenotype, which is referred to as Th1beta and suggests that these cells are a component of type I immunity and thatT-bet expression is acritical determinant of Th1 versus Th1 beta cell fate.
Understanding the IL-23-IL-17 immune pathway.
Unregulated IL-23/IL-17 immune response in autoimmune diseases.
Lymphoid tissue inducer–like cells are an innate source of IL-17 and IL-22
TLDR
It appears that splenic LTi-like cells are a rapid source of IL-17 and IL-22, which might contribute to dynamic organization of secondary lymphoid organ structure or host defense.

Interleukin-23 Promotes a Distinct CD4 T Cell Activation State Characterized by the Production of Interleukin-17*
TLDR
Evidence is presented that murine IL-23, which is produced by activated dendritic cells, acts on memory T cells, resulting in elevated IL-17 secretion, which suggests that during a secondary immune response, IL- 23 can promote an activation state with features distinct from the well characterized Th1 and Th2 profiles.
Divergent Pro- and Antiinflammatory Roles for IL-23 and IL-12 in Joint Autoimmune Inflammation
TLDR
The data presented here indicate that IL-23 is an essential promoter of end-stage joint autoimmune inflammation, whereas IL-12 paradoxically mediates protection from autoimmune inflammation.
Interleukin-23 rather than interleukin-12 is the critical cytokine for autoimmune inflammation of the brain
TLDR
It is shown that the perceived central role for IL-12 in autoimmune inflammation, specifically in the brain, has been misinterpreted and that IL-23, and not IL- 12, is the critical factor in this response.
IL-17 production from activated T cells is required for the spontaneous development of destructive arthritis in mice deficient in IL-1 receptor antagonist
TLDR
Observations suggest that IL-17 plays a crucial role in T cell activation, downstream of IL-1, causing the development of autoimmune arthritis.
Suppression of Immune Induction of Collagen-Induced Arthritis in IL-17-Deficient Mice 1
TLDR
Observations suggest that IL-17 plays a crucial role in the development of CIA by activating autoantigen-specific cellular and humoral immune responses.
Interleukin-17 and interferon-gamma synergize in the enhancement of proinflammatory cytokine production by human keratinocytes.
TLDR
It is indicated that IL-17 is a proinflammatory cytokine, which could amplify the development of cutaneous inflammation and may support the maintenance of chronic dermatoses, through stimulation of keratinocytes to augment their secretion of pro inflammatory cytokines.
IL-17 is produced by some proinflammatory Th1/Th0 cells but not by Th2 cells.
TLDR
IL-17 production appears to be a mechanism for Th1/Th0 cells, the most frequent Th subtype present in the rheumatoid synovium, to contribute to the local inflammatory reactions.
Experimental autoimmune encephalitis and inflammation in the absence of interleukin-12.
TLDR
expression profiling of the inflamed CNS revealed that Th2 cytokines such as IL-4 and IL-10 are upregulated in p35(-/-) mice, whereas LT-alpha and TNF-alpha levels are reduced.
IL-23 Provides a Limited Mechanism of Resistance to Acute Toxoplasmosis in the Absence of IL-121
TLDR
It is indicated that IL- 12, not IL-23, plays a dominant role in resistance to toxoplasmosis but, in the absence of IL-12,IL-23 can provide a limited mechanism of resistance to this infection.
Compromised Humoral and Delayed-Type Hypersensitivity Responses in IL-23-Deficient Mice1
TLDR
IL-23 plays a critical role in T cell-dependent immune responses, and the data provide further support for the existence of an IL-23/IL-17 axis of communication between the adaptive and innate parts of the immune system.
