Specifications

IL-33 is a novel member of the IL-1 family of proteins that was discovered in a computational search to identify unknown family members (1). IL-33 is expressed by fibroblasts and endothelial cells, and is upregulated in response to inflammatory stimuli (1). IL-33 plays a key role in Th2 type inflammatory responses, including atopic allergic responses and asthma (1,2). The IL-33 receptor consists of the ST2 and IL-1 accessory protein (IL-1-Acp) (1,3). ST2 is expressed on mast cells, basophils and Th2 cells (1). In addition to its putative role as a Th2 cytokine, IL-33 also contains a nuclear localization domain and may function as a nuclear factor (4,5). The nuclear function of IL-33 remains unclear. IL-33 is released by cellular necrosis, similar to other “alarmins”, thereby signaling tissue injury (5,6). However, more recent data suggests that IL-33 may also be actively secreted from live cells via a non-classical mechanism (7).
