Scientific Background:Interleukin-1 (IL-1) family members, such as IL-1α/β and IL-18 play important roles in host defense, immune regulation, neuronal injury and inflammation. A member of this family, IL-33, also named Nuclear Factor from High Endothelial Venules (NF-HEV), has been reported to be the specific ligand for ST2, an orphan receptor of the IL-1 receptor family. Structurally, IL-33 is closest to IL-18, rather than IL-1β. The human IL-33 is expressed with a prodomain (aa 1-111) that is cleaved by caspase-1 to produce a 18kDa mature protein (112-270). The stimulation of ST2 by IL-33 induces the NF-κB and MAPK athways. IL-33 is synthesized in response to cytokines such as IL-1β (but also TNFα) and plays an important role in TH2-associated immunology, by triggering an increase secretion of IL-5 and IL-13 from polarized TH2 cells. Overexpression of IL-33 in mice leads to severe pathological changes in mucosal organs.
