Detection of Human IL‑33 Propeptide by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line, Raji human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line, and K562 human chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human IL‑33 Propeptide Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4810) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for IL‑33 Propeptide at approximately 31 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.
IL‑33 was detected in immersion fixed HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells using Goat Anti-Human IL‑33 Propeptide Antigen Affinity‑purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4810) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (yellow; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

IL-33 (interleukin 33; also NF-HEV and IL-1F11) is a 31-32 kDa member of the IL-1 family of proteins. It is expressed in endothelial cells and reportedly has two functions; first, it induces Th2-type cytokines, and second, it acts as a nuclear transcription factor. Human IL-33 is 270 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a putative proregion (aa 1-111) and a mature segment (aa 112-270). The proregion contains a bipartite NLS (aa 61-78), plus an alpha -helical homeodomain-like HTH motif (aa 1-65). The HTH motif mediates nuclear localization and heterochromatin association. A potential caspase 1 cleavage site exists in human IL-33 (Ser111-Ser112), but not in IL-33 from canine, porcine or bovine. There is one splice variant that shows a deletion of aa 113-118. Over aa 1-111, human IL-33 propeptide is 45% aa identical to mouse IL-33 propeptide.
