Uromodulin. An immunosuppressive 85-kilodalton glycoprotein isolated from human pregnancy urine is a high affinity ligand for recombinant interleukin 1 alpha.


Uromodulin is an 85-kDa immunosuppressive glycoprotein originally isolated from human pregnancy urine. It exhibits immunosuppressive activity in vitro at concentrations between 10(-9) and 10(-11) M. Recent data demonstrate that uromodulin is able to specifically inhibit in vitro assays dependent upon interleukin 1 (IL-1). We now present evidence that… (More)
