The soluble interleukin-6 receptor is generated by shedding.


The ligand-binding subunit (gp80) of the human interleukin-6 receptor (IL-6R) was transiently expressed in COS-7 cells. The metabolically labeled protein was shown to be quantitatively released from the membrane within 20 h. We identified the protein released from the transfected COS-7 cells after purification to homogeneity and N-terminal sequencing as a… (More)
