Abstract

This review outlines what we know about cytokines and their evolution within vertebrates. It is focused on the interleukins, as key cytokines involved in the regulation of adaptive immunity, as well as the TNF family of cytokines. The genes that are known, and their function, are outlined as far as possible, and potential modes of evolution within cytokine gene families is discussed.
