Detection of Human IL-37/IL-1F7 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) untreated (-) or treated (+) with |
2 μg/mL LPS for 24 hours and THP‑1 human acute monocytic leukemia cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with 10 μg/mL LPS for
3 hours and 200 nM PMA for 24 hours. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human IL-37/IL-1F7 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody
(Catalog # AF1975) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for IL-37/IL-1F7 at approximately 17 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Human interleukin 1 family member 7 (IL-1F7), also named FIL-1Z, IL-1H4, and IL-1RP1, belongs to the IL-1 cytokine family, which currently has ten members. With the exception of IL-18 that maps to human chromosome 11, all other IL-1 family members map to the same cluster on human chromosome 2. Five alternatively spliced transcripts that arise through alternate exon usage have been described. These transcripts encode five different IL-1F7 isoforms (IL-1F7a through e also referred to as isofoms 1 through 5) that have distinct expression profiles. Polymorphism in the protein sequence of IL-1F7 isoforms also exists. Like IL-1 alpha, IL-1 beta and IL-18, all of the IL-1F7 variants lack a typical signal peptide. The longest IL-1F7 transcript, referred to as IL-1F7b or IL-1F7 isoform 1, encodes a 218 amino acid (aa) residues proprotein containing a 45 aa propeptide, which is removed by caspase-1 to generate the 173 aa mature segment. Mature IL-1F7b and other IL-1F7 variants lack potential N-linked glycosylation sites. The secreted mature IL-17F7b was reported to exist as a nondisulfide linked homodimers in solution, IL-1F7 shares approximately 21%, 24%, and 30% aa sequence identity with mature IL-1 alpha, IL-1 beta and IL-1ra, respectively. Mouse IL-1F7 has not been reported, but human IL-1F7 is active on mouse cells. IL-1F7b binds to IL-18 R alpha with low affinity but does not exert any IL-18 agonistic or antagonistic effects. IL-1F7b also binds to the IL-18BP to enhance the antagonistic effects of IL-18BP. It has been proposed that IL-1F7b form a trimeric complex with IL-18BP and IL-18 R beta. This complex blocks IL-18 activity by sequestering the signal transducing subunit and preventing it from participating in IL-18 signaling (1‑8).
