We describe here the cloning of canine IL-10 cDNA (GenBank accession No. U33843) and the expression of recombinant IL-10 in a dog kidney cell line (DK6247) and Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO). Canine IL-10 exhibits strong sequence homology to the known sequences of human, mouse, rat, and bovine genes at nucleotide and amino acid levels. The IL-10 gene, when introduced into DK and CHO cell lines, produces recombinant IL-10 that causes an inhibitory effect on allogeneic MHC-driven lymphoproliferative responses.
