The affinities of purified recombinant human IL-18 binding protein (BP) and ectromelia and cowpox virus homologs for human and murine IL-18 were compared by plasmon resonance. The dissociation constants of human IL-18BP were similar for murine and human IL-18. By contrast, the dissociation constants of the viral proteins for murine IL-18 were 12- to 50-fold lower than that for human IL-18. The ectromelia and cowpox virus proteins were biologically active, as judged by their ability to inhibit… CONTINUE READING
