Component of a hexamer of two molecules each of IL6, IL6R and IL6ST; first binds to IL6R to associate with the signaling subunit IL6ST (PubMed:12829785). Interacts with IL6R (via the N-terminal ectodomain); this interaction may be affected by IL6R-binding with SORL1, hence decreasing IL6 cis signaling (PubMed:28265003). Interacts with SORL1 (via the N-terminal ectodomain); this interaction leads to IL6 internalization and lysosomal degradation (PubMed:28265003). May form a trimeric complex with the soluble SORL1 ectodomain and soluble IL6R receptor; this interaction might stabilize circulating IL6, hence promoting IL6 trans signaling (PubMed:28265003).
