These are small proteins that are important for cell signaling. They affect the activity of other cells. They also help in autocrine signaling. Cytokines are produced from immune cells like macrophages, B-lymphocytes, T lymphocytes and mast cells.
The appearance of a cytokine due to biosynthesis or secretion following a cellular stimulus, resulting in an increase in its intracelluar or extracellular levels. Cytokines exist in peptide, protein and glycoprotein forms.
