h IL-1 is produced as a consequence of infection or antigenic challenge. It produces a wide array of effects in the immune responses and induces other cytokines.

c IL-2 stimulates proliferation and maturation of TW2 cells and production by T1/2 cells of cell cytokines that control the differentiation and proliferation of B cells.

d IL-3 acts on the pluripotent hematopoietic stem cell to promote the development of G, M, F, Ey, Meg, and MC.

eIL-6 activates stromal bone marrow cells to produce colony-stimulating factors and acts as a pyrogen (i.e., raises body temperature; promotes proliferation of B and T cells).
