Technical Data
IL-36 alpha, Recombinant, Mouse (Interleukin-36alpha, Interleukin-1 Family Member 6, IL-1F6, FIL1epsilon, Interleukin-1epsilon, Interleukin-1 Homolog 1, IL-1H1)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
IL-36alpha (IL-1F6), IL-36beta (IL-1F8) and IL-36gamma (IL-1F9) bind to IL-36R (IL-1Rrp2) and IL-1RAcP, activating similar intracellular signals as IL-1. IL-36Ra inhibits the production of proinflammatory cytokines, including IL-12, IL-1beta, IL-6, TNF-alpha and IL-23 induced by IL-36 in BMDC and CD4 T cells. Skin and dendritic cells are targets of the IL-36 interleukins leading to a Th1 response. These cytokines may represent potential targets for immune-mediated inflammatory conditions or, alternatively, could be used as adjuvants in vaccination.
