Recombinant Rat Interleukin-1RN
Interleukin 1 Receptor Antagonist (IL1RN)
Rat recombinant interleukin-1 receptor antagonist protein (IL1RN) was initially called the IL1 inhibitor which is encoded by the IL1RN gene. IL1RN is a member of the interleukin-1 (IL1) cytokine family, and is secreted by various types of cells including immune cells, epithelial cells and adipocytes. IL1RN can inhibit the activity of IL1 by binding to the IL1R1 receptor and preventing its association with the co-receptor IL1RAP. IL1RN is also used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease in which IL1 plays a key role. The rat IL1RN is a single nonglycosylated polypeptide chain, containing 152 amino acids that has been shown to block the inflammatory responses induced by IL1 both in vitro and in vivo.
