I don't understand what you mean by this "The IL2 molecule was also the first interleukin found to be encoded by a complementary DNA (cDNA),[3]" . Do you mean "cloned?" Genes are not encoded by cDNA's.


A free (public domain) image of mouse lungs treaated with Interleukin 2 is available on the NIH site, but I don't have time to download/upload etc, and didn't want it to forget it:

There seems to be a problem with the formatting with the references section being midway up the article - To be honest this whole page could probably do with a re-write — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.69.125.132 (talk) 13:57, 16 February 2012 (UTC)



So who is the one that found IL-2? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 160.94.44.153 (talk) 23:06, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

It may be pertinent that IL-2 seems to play a key role in some of the behaviors represented in autism. It's also considered a possible culprit in type I diabetes. IL-2 is really quite a busy, little boy, actually. I haven't seen anything like it since I was doing self-study on kappa- and delta-opioids.71.49.57.120 00:29, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

STALWART study has shown IL2 to be ineffective over a 10 year period in HIV treatment. IL2 will no longer be studied as a treatment option in the US. Unfortunately at this point I have no authoritative textual source to corroborate. Miglewis (talk) 17:28, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
