IL27

Interleukin 27 (IL-27) is a heterodimeric cytokine that includes a 4 helix package deal cytokine-like subunit, termed p28, and a soluble cytokine receptor-like subunit, EBI3 (Epstein-Barr virus-induced gene 3). The p28 subunit has homology with different single-chain cytokines, while EBI3 is expounded to the extracellular area of the hematopoietic cytokine receptor relatives.

Since 1988, a farm near the west coast of Costa Rica has been breeding iguanas and releasing them to the wild after a period of months. Back in the wild, they can be “harvested” again when fully grown. By breeding and releasing iguanas in this way, a number of objectives can be pursued simultaneously: ● Species protection Iguanas are to be reintroduced to the wild and their population increased. By breeding them on the farm, their chances of survival are increased from approx. 5% in nature, where the young in particular are exposed to numerous predators, to approx.

Box 3). Initial assessment of these projects will be available in 1995 (personal message from C. Prescott-Allen, Co-Chair, IUCN, SSC). Box 3 Protecting the green iguana in Costa Rica The green iguana (Iguana iguana), an indigenous Central American species, is severely threatened; the population has declined so drastically that it has been included in the Annex to the CITES Convention. One of the main reasons for this decline is the rate of deforestation in that region, since forests are the natural habitat of the iguana.

These two persons will function as representatives of the GEF especially concerning Conventions. 3 Global Environmental Facility 17 the Chief Executive Officer of the GEF Secretariat, while the other (the Elected Chairperson) is elected by the Members of the GEF Council. The post of elected chairperson is filled alternately from one meeting to the next by someone from a developing or an industrial country, with the transition countries assigned to the latter group. 3. The resolutions passed by the Executive Council should be based on consensus wherever possible.
