Expression of ST2, an interleukin-1 receptor homologue, is induced by proinflammatory stimuli.

ST2/T1 is an orphan receptor highly homologous to the IL-1 receptor. Using ST2 cDNA, ST2 specific primers, and a polyclonal antibody generated against ST2, the expression of mRNA and protein corresponding to both the soluble and membrane anchored forms of ST2 was studied. ST2 mRNAs were ubiquitously expressed in all the human tissues examined and were… CONTINUE READING
