Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is lethal to animals because it activates cytokine release, causing septic shock and tissue injury. Early proinflammatory cytokines (e.g., tumor necrosis factor [TNF] and… Expand
Novel role of PKR in inflammasome activation and HMGB1 release
The inflammasome regulates the release of caspase activation-dependent cytokines, including interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-18 and high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1). By studying HMGB1 release mechanisms,… Expand
Reflex principles of immunological homeostasis.
The reasoning that neural reflexes maintain homeostasis in other body organs, and that the immune system is innervated, prompted a search for neural circuits that regulate innate and adaptive… Expand
HMGB1 as a DNA‐binding cytokine

HMGB1 (high mobility group box chromosomal protein 1), historically known as an abundant, nonhistone architectural chromosomal protein, is extremely conserved across species. As a nuclear protein,… Expand
High mobility group box protein 1 in complex with lipopolysaccharide or IL-1 promotes an increased inflammatory phenotype in synovial fibroblasts
IntroductionIn addition to its direct proinflammatory activity, extracellular high mobility group box protein 1 (HMGB1) can strongly enhance the cytokine response evoked by other proinflammatory… Expand
High-mobility group box protein 1 (HMGB1): an alarmin mediating the pathogenesis of rheumatic disease
High-mobility group box protein 1 (HMGB1) is a non-histone nuclear protein that has a dual function. Inside the cell, HMGB1 binds DNA, regulating transcription and determining chromosomal… Expand
High Mobility Group Box Protein 1 (HMGB1): The Prototypical Endogenous Danger Molecule
High mobility group box protein 1 (HMGB1) is an evolutionary ancient nuclear protein that exerts divergent biological tasks inside and outside of cells. The functions of HMGB1 depend on location,… Expand
High-mobility group box 1 protein (HMGB1) operates as an alarmin outside as well as inside cells.
Alarmins are preformed, endogenous molecules that can be promptly released to signal cell or tissue stress or damage. The ubiquitous nuclear molecule high-mobility group box 1 protein (HMGB1) is a… Expand
Extracellular HMGB1 as a therapeutic target in inflammatory diseases

- Expert opinion on therapeutic targets
- 15 February 2018
ABSTRACT Introduction: High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is a ubiquitous nuclear protein that promotes inflammation when released extracellularly after cellular activation, stress, damage or death.… Expand
The role of HMGB1 in the pathogenesis of rheumatic disease.
HMGB1 is a ubiquitous nuclear protein that can be released by any damaged cell or by activated macrophages and certain other cell types. HMGB1 has been successfully therapeutically targeted in… Expand
