Recombinant Human IL1-alpha is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 159 amino acids.
Background: Interleukin-1 alpha is a non-secreted proinflammatory cytokine produced in a variety of cells including monocytes, tissue macrophages, keratinocytes and other epithelial cells. Both IL1 alpha and IL1 beta binds to the same receptor and has similar if not identical biological properties. These cytokines have a broad range of activities including, stimulation of thymocyte proliferation, by inducing IL2 release, B-cell maturation and proliferation, mitogenic FGF-like activity and the ability to stimulate the release of prostaglandin and collagenase from synovial cells. However, whereas IL1 beta is a secreted cytokine, IL1 alpha is predominantly a cell-associated cytokine.
