Structural differences between the putative carbohydrate-recognition domains of human IL-1 alpha, IL-1 beta and IL-1 receptor antagonist obtained by in silico modeling


In a previous report (Cebo et al. J Biol Chem 276 (2001) 5685–5691), it was established that biologically active recombinant human IL-1α and IL-1β had different carbohydrate-binding properties. IL-1α recognized a di-antennary N-glycan with two α2-3-linked sialic acid residues, whereas IL-1β recognized the GM4, a α2-3-linked sialylated glycosphingolipid… (More)
