Recent evidence has strongly implicated IL-36 cytokines as key initiators of inflammation in the skin barrier. IL-36 cytokines belong to the extended IL-1 family and, similar to most members of this family, are expressed as inactive precursors that require proteolytic processing for activation. Because the proteases responsible for activation of members of(More)
Recent evidence has strongly implicated the IL-1 family cytokines IL-36α, IL-36β, and IL-36γ as key initiators of skin inflammation. Similar to the other members of the IL-1 family, IL-36 cytokines are expressed as inactive precursors and require proteolytic processing for activation; however, the responsible proteases are unknown. Here, we show that(More)
Activated neutrophils can undergo a mode of regulated cell death, called NETosis, that results in the extrusion of chromatin into the extracellular space, thereby acting as extracellular traps for microorganisms. Neutrophil-derived extracellular traps (NETs) are comprised of DNA decorated with histones, antimicrobial proteins and neutrophil granule(More)
