OBJECTIVE HMGB1 concentration is currently regarded as an important biological marker in many inflammation-related conditions. Although ELISA has been proposed as a convenient way to quantify HMGB1 in biological fluids, various molecules have been shown to complex with HMGB1 and may interfere with HMGB1 detection by this technique. We describe here a simple(More)
High-mobility group box-1 (HMGB1) is remarkably mobile in living cells, which reflects its ability to interact only transiently with both DNA and protein. This property is likely essential for HMGB1 nuclear activities. Nonetheless the weak interaction of HMGB1 with DNA and/or protein partners has also been a major limitation for investigating HMGB1(More)
