IL11

A gene on chromosome 19q13.3-q13.4 that encodes interleukin-11, a member of the gp130 family of cytokines, which drive the assembly of multi-subunit receptor complexes, all of which contain at least one molecule of the transmembrane signalling receptor IL6ST. IL11 directly stimulates the proliferation of haematopoietic stem cells and megakaryocyte progenitor cells, and it induces megakaryocyte maturation resulting in increased platelet production.
