Asp(126), Asp(130) and Asp(134) are Necessary for Human IL-18 to Elicit IFN-gamma Production from PBMC.


To identify the amino acid residues which are critical to interleukin 18 (IL-18) function, three highly-conserved amino acids (Asp(126), Asp(130) and Asp(134)) were mutated to Asn, Lys and Lys. The wild type and mutant recombinant human interleukin-18 (rhIL-18) were expressed in E.coli, renatured by stepwise dilution and purified by Sephadex G-75… (More)
