def: "A protein complex that is composed of an interleukin-12 alpha (p35, product of the IL12A gene) and an interleukin-12 beta subunit (p40, product of the IL12B gene) and is secreted into the extracellular space." [GOC:add, GOC:ebc, GOC:mah, PMID:12948519, PMID:1381512]
comment: Note that this heterodimeric cytokine utilizes the IL-12p35 subunit as its alpha chain, which is also used by IL-35 as its alpha chain, and utilizes the IL-12p40 subunit as its beta chain, which is also used by IL-23 as its beta chain.
