Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is an anti-inflammatory cytokine that works through IL-10 receptor alpha subunitand suppresses immune responses in many infectious diseases such as leishmaniasis as well as in cancer. Therefore, in order to restore the host-protective immune responses in such diseases, an antagonist to this cytokine is a pressing need. Herein, using phage peptide library display, we have identified a dodecameric peptide that functions as an antagonist to human IL-10 receptor in an IL-10-induced STAT3 phosphorylation assay. The peptide antagonist’s ability to restore anti-leishmanial function in CD40-activated macrophages was also tested. We observed that the peptide reduced IL-10-induced STAT-3 phosphorylation and enhanced CD40-activated leishmanial functions in macrophages. � 2012 American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics.
