Interleukin-1 (IL-1) was originally thought to be a lymphocyte activating factor, but it was later found to have multiple effects, including inducing inflammation, raising body temperature, raising body temperature, and stimulating T and B cell proliferation. The IL-1 mediated inflammatory response can be eliminated by the natural inhibitor IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra). There is evidence that IL-1 is involved in the pathogenesis of certain cardiovascular diseases, and researchers have pointed out the role of IL-1Ra in the formation of atherosclerosis. Creative BioMartBiomarker is capable to provide our customers with superior IL-1Ra detection service, various detection methods ensuring high sensitivity for detecting biomarkers in different samples with different concentrations.
IL-1 is the term for two different but related proteins, namely IL-1α and IL-1β, encoded by two separate genes. They produce a 31 kDa precursor under stress or cell injury and are subject to proteolysis by specific proteases during maturation. IL-1α and IL-1β use the same membrane receptor (IL-1R) to trigger signal transduction pathways, leading to the activation of NF-κB or AP-1. The IL-1 mediated inflammatory response can be eliminated by the natural inhibitor IL-1Ra. IL-1Ra binds to two IL-1 proteins in the IL-1 protein family. When IL-1Ra binds to IL-1R, it does not activate the signaling pathway.

Other researchers have pointed out the role of IL-1Ra in the formation of atherosclerosis, and the lack of IL-1Ra has obvious potential for promoting atherosclerosis. In addition, studies have found that systemic IL-1Ra levels are elevated in individuals with cardiac metabolic risk factors such as obesity, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. Further research found that serum IL-1Ra levels were positively correlated with the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Serum levels of IL-1Ra, can be used as a biomarker of the risk of cardiovascular disease.
