Western blot analysis of 50 ng recombinant human IL-1α (lane 1), recombinant mouse IL-1α (lane 2), THP-1 untreated (lane 3), THP-1 treated with PMA for three days, then LPS for one day (lane 4), and Raw264.7 untreated (lane 5) and Raw264.7 starved overnight and treated with LPS for one day (lane 6). Anti-IL-1α (clone A15032A) antibody was used, followed by HRP anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody. Purified anti-GAPDH antibody was used as a loading control.

    U87-MG cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (PFA) for ten minutes, permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 for five minutes and blocked with 5% FBS for 30 minutes. Then the cells were intracellularly stained with 2 µg/mL anti-IL-1α (clone A15032A) antibody for two hours followed by 2 µg/mL Alexa Fluor® 594 conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG for one hour at room temperature. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue). The image was captured with a 60X objective.

Description

IL-1 (Interleukin-1) is a central mediator of innate immunity and inflammation. The IL-1 family includes seven ligands with agonist activity (IL-1α and IL-1β, IL-18, IL-33, IL-36α, IL-36β, IL-36γ), three receptor antagonists (IL-1RA, IL-36RA, IL-38), and an anti-inflammatory cytokine (IL-37). A tight regulation through receptor antagonists, decoy receptors, and signaling inhibitors ensures a balance between amplification of innate immunity and uncontrolled inflammation. The cytokine IL-1α is a key molecule in the IL-1 family that induces autonomous proliferation in vascular smooth muscle cells, T cell activation during antigen presentation, up-regulation of monocyte/macrophage-mediated tumor cytotoxicity, stimulation of osteoclast formation, and production of proteinases in human chondrocytes. Furthermore, IL-1α is also an early and important mediator of inflammation after injury.

Antigen Details

Structure
271 amino acids with the predicted molecular weight of approximately 31kD.
Distribution

IL-1α is produced by monocytes, macrophages, keratinocytes, stimulated B lymphocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, and epithelial cells.

Function
The cytokine IL-1α is a key molecule both in the innate and in the adaptive immune response. It induces autonomous proliferation in vascular smooth muscle cells, T cell activation during antigen presentation, up-regulation of monocyte/macrophage-mediated tumor cytotoxicity, stimulation of osteoclast formation, and production of proteinases in human chondrocytes.
Interaction
Stimulates thymocyte and B-cell proliferation.
Ligand Receptor
Type I and II IL-1 receptors (IL-1RA and IL-1RB).
Cell Type
B cells, Neutrophils
Biology Area
Angiogenesis, Cancer Biomarkers, Cell Biology, Cell Cycle/DNA Replication, Cell Motility/Cytoskeleton/Structure, Cell Proliferation and Viability, Immunology, Innate Immunity, Signal Transduction
Molecular Family
Cytokines/Chemokines
