IL-33 is a recently discovered cytokine involved in induction of Th2 responses and functions as an alarmin. Despite numerous recent studies targeting IL-33, its role in vivo is incompletely understood. Here we investigated inflammatory responses to intraperitoneal IL-33 injections in wild-type and mast cell-deficient mice. We found that wild-type mice, but(More)
Thrombin is one of the most extensively studied of all proteases. Its central role in the coagulation cascade as well as several other areas has been thoroughly documented. Despite this, its consensus cleavage site has never been determined in detail. Here we have determined its extended substrate recognition profile using phage-display technology. The(More)
Mast cells have been attributed several functions in both health and disease. Mast cell activation and release of inflammatory mediators are associated with the pathogenesis of several diseases, in particular that of allergic diseases. While the notion of mast cells as important, protective sentinel cells is old, this feature of the cell is not well(More)
