Interleukin 10, a secreted protein belonging to the IL-10 family, is a cytokine produced primarily by monocytes and to a lesser extent by lymphocytes. It down-regulates the expression of cytokines IL-2, IL-3, TNF and GM-CSF produced by activated macrophages and by helper T-cells, MHC class II Ags, and costimulatory molecules on macrophages.
