Interleukin-35 (IL35) is a complex conformed by Interleukin-12 subunit alpha (IL12A) and Interleukin-27 subunit alpha (IL27). IL35 can induce heterodimers of Interleukin-6 receptor beta precursor (IL6ST) and Interleukin-12 receptor beta 2 (IL12RB2). Consequently, heteromeric Signal transducer and activator of transcription 1-alpha/beta (STAT1) and Signal transducer and activator of transcription 4 (STAT4) are phosphorylated. Subsequently, this STAT1:STAT4 complex can translocate into the nucleus and bind to promoter regions of IL27 thereby facilitating the protein expression. Thus, by inducing the expression of itself, a positive feedback regulation is achieved in the IL35 signalling pathway. This is a black box event because the intermediate steps of IL27 transcription/translation are omitted.
