In direct ELISAs, approximately 30% cross-reactivity with recombinant humanIL-1 RII is observed and less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) IL-1 RI, recombinant rat IL-1 Rrp2, rmIL-18 R, andrmIL-18 R beta is observed.
Reconstitute at 0.2 mg/mL in sterile PBS.
The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine receptor that belongs to the interleukin 1 receptor family. This protein binds interleukin alpha (IL1A), interleukin beta (IL1B), and interleukin 1 receptor, type I(IL1R1/IL1RA), and acts as a decoy receptor that inhibits the activity of its ligands. Interleukin 4 (IL4) is reported to antagonize the activity of interleukin 1 by inducing the expression and release of this cytokine. This gene and three other genes form a cytokine receptor gene cluster on chromosome 2q12. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been reported.
