HMGB1 (high mobility group protein B1) belongs to the HMGB family and contains two HMG box DNA-binding domains. It is a highly conserved, ubiquitous protein present in the nuclei and cytoplasm of nearly all cell types, and is a necessary and sufficient mediator of inflammation during sterile and infection-associated responses. HMGB1 also act as DNA nuclear binding protein that has recently been shown to be an early trigger of sterile inflammation in animal models of trauma-hemorrhage via the activation of the Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) and the receptor for the advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE). It is reported that the level of HMGB1 is elevated during sterile tissue injury, infection, lethal endotoxemia or sepsis, collagen-induced arthritis, and ischemia-reperfusion induced tissue injury.
