Interleukin 27 alpha subunit (IL27, IL 27p28) can bind Cytokine receptor like factor 1 (CRLF1). IL27 has greatest homology with Interleukin 11 (IL11) and CRLF1. The IL27:CRLF1 complex is produced in dendritic cells and stimulates Natural Killer (NK) cells, increasing Interleukin 12 and Interleukin 2 induced Interferon gamma (IFNG) production and activation of marker expression.

Experiments with Ba/F3 transfectants indicate that IL27:CRLF1 activates cells expressing Interleukin 6 receptor subunit alpha (IL6R) in addition to the Interleukin 27 receptor subunits WSX1 and gp130. When tested on CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, IL27:CRLF1 induces Interleukin 6 receptor subunit alpha (IL6RA) dependent Signal transducer and activator of transcription 1 alpha/beta (STAT1) and STAT3 phosphorylation (Crabé et al. 2009). This reaction is a Black Box event since we know this complex forms and is secreted but do not know the compartment where dimer formation takes place.
