We isolated cDNAs encoding a mouse interleukin 10 receptor (mIL-10R) from mouse mast cell and macrophage cell lines. The two cDNAs are substantially identical and express an approximately 110-kDa polypeptide in COS7 cells, which binds mIL-10 specifically. A mouse pro-B-cell line (Ba/F3) expressing transfected recombinant mIL-10R binds IL-10 with high affinity (approximately 70 pM) and proliferates in response to mIL-10. mIL-10R is structurally related to interferon receptors (IFNRs). Since IL-10 inhibits macrophage activation by IFN-gamma, a possible implication of this relationship interaction of IL-10R and IFN-gamma R or their signaling pathways.
