PROTEIN
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • twelve stranded beta-trefoil structure
  • has the same beta-trefoil fold as other IL1 family members, and the hydrophobic core is well conserved, but there are substantial differences in the loop conformations
  • conjugated GlycoP , Other
    HOMOLOGY
    interspecies ortholog to murine Il1f5
    Homologene
    FAMILY interleukin 1 cytokine family
    CATEGORY secretory , signaling cytokine
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • putative antagonist of IL1 receptor
  • involved in innate immune responses to infection and injury
  • mediates anti-inflammatory effects through its ability to induce IL4 production and this is a consequence of its interaction with the orphan receptor, single Ig IL-1R-related molecule (SIGIRR)/TIR8
  • primary inflammatory cytokine, that may play an important role in the susceptibility to developing rheumatoid arthritis
  • IL1 family receptor antagonist, which opposes the activity of the IL36A and IL36G innate cytokines
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS immunity/defense , inflammation

    small molecule
    protein
  • activating NF-kappa B through the IL1 receptor
  • bind to specific receptors and cause activation of NFkappaB and MAP kinase
  • cell & other
    REGULATION
    induced by phorbol ester (PHA) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS)
    ASSOCIATED DISORDERS
    corresponding disease(s) GPP

  • .to common forms of psoriasis
  • Variant & Polymorphism other putative dysregulation of the interleukin-36–interleukin-36Ra signaling pathway may confer a predisposition to common forms of psoriasis
