The structure was published by Somers, W., Stahl, M., and Seehra, J.S., in 1997 in a paper entitled "1.9 A crystal structure of interleukin 6: implications for a novel mode of receptor dimerization and signaling." (abstract).
This crystal structure was determined using X-ray diffraction at a resolution of 1.9 Å and deposited in 1997.
The experimental data on which the structure is based was not deposited.
