|Background||Human Interleukin-19 (IL-19) is encoded by the IL19 gene, which is located on the chromosome 1. The protein belongs to the IL-10 family that includes IL-10, IL-20, IL-22, IL-24, and IL-26. As a monomer made of seven amphipathic helices, IL-19 has a helical bundle and shares the same cell surface receptor (IL-20R) with IL-20 and IL-24. It may play some important roles in inflammatory responses because it up-regulates IL-6 and TNF-alpha and induces apoptosis.|
