Interleukin-30 (IL-30) is a protein with a molecular weight of 28 kilodaltons, which forms one chain of the heterodimeric cytokine called interleukin 27 (IL-27), thus is sometimes called IL27-p28. The other chain of IL-27 is a molecule called Epstein-Barr induced gene-3 (EBI3). IL-30 is a member of the long-chain, 4-helix bundle family of cytokines, making it structurally similar to IL-6.[1] This gene for this molecule is now officially called IL-27 under HGNC guidelines.[2]
