What does IL-5 do?

IL-5 is a Th2 cytokine similar to granulocyte stimulating factor. Eosinophiles have high concentration of IL-5 receptors which increases their numbers and ability to infiltrate. Asthma and allergic rhinitis depend on IL-5.

TIR (Toll IL-1) domain is on signaling IL-1 receptor and Toll-like receptors which then begins signaling pathways that generate NF-kB, JNKs, ERKs, and mAPKs transcription factors.


How does IL-1 work?

IL-1α is synthesized as a precursor protein and stored in mesenchymal and epithelial cells but must be synthesized de novo in response to stress. The precursor is modified into a 17-kDa transcription factor, and cytosolic protein which acts as a damage-associated molecular pattern molecule (DAMP). DAMP then stimulates pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) on innate immunity cells, and results in necrosis or pyroptosis of the originally stressed cell.IL-1α stimulates IL-1R


What pathways are stimulated after IL-1 receptor activation?

IL-1 stimulates the transmembrane receptor IL-1R, which has many associated proteins including ACCP1, MyD88, IRAK and TRAF6. MyD88, IRAK and TRAF6 also associate with Toll like receptors. These complexes stimulate NIK which then phosphorylates IkB-alpha which is then ubiquinated and destroyed releasing p65 (RelA) and p50 (NF-kB1), transcription factors for inflammatory response-TNFα, INF.
TRAF (TNF receptor associated factor) has a C-terminal TRAF domain that mediates binding to TNF receptors and CD40.

It upregulates IL-6 in muscles during exercise.


What is the endogenous ligand that forms an inflammasome in response to bacterial and viral DNA?

Bacterial products flagellin and PrgJ are recognized by NAIP2 which then combines with 9 units of NLRC4 to form a 10 member ring. NLRC4 and CARD interact with caspase-1 forming the NAIP2-NLRC4 inflammasome. AIM2 is an interferon-inducible protein, 344 aa, which forms part of the inflammasome which then sets off pyroptosis and IL-1beta and IL-18 maturation.

Are IL-1 transcripts active prior to proteolytic cleavage?

IL-1 alpha and IL-33 are stored in their long form and are capable of stimulating their receptor. IL-1 beta and IL-18 require proteolytic cleavage by caspace 1 to become active.IL-1 secretion occurs without use of the golgi apparatus.


Why is IL-1 alpha considered a dual function cytokine?

how are Tregs cells produced in the gut which permit tolerance to most gastrointestinal antigens?

Tissue resident mononuclear phagocytes produce IL-1 beta which stimulates ILC3 cells (innate lymphoid) which then release Csf2 (GM-CSF). Phagocytes, and dendritic cells then produce IL-10 and retinoic acid which then cause naïve T cells to become Treg cells.ILC3 cells are ROR gamma t+ (RAR-related orphan receptor gamma).

How does CTLA for modulate immune responses?

CTL A4 (CD152, cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4) is a Th cell surface immunoglobulin superfamily protein receptor similar to CD28. Both CTL A4 and CD28 bind to (CD80-86) on activated B cells and monocytes. Binding to CTLA-4 inhibits T cells. Binding CD28 on on T cells by CD80 (B7.1-activated by Toll-like receptors) CD86 (B7.2-constitutive) on antigen presenting cells primes T cells, and leads to increased expression of CTLA-4.
CTLA-4 may work by capturing CD80-86 thus decreasing CD28 stimulation.
The intracellular domain of CLA-4 is similar to CD28 and can bind PI3K, PP2A, and SHP-2 thereby possibly dephosphorylating CD3 and LAT (linker of activated T cells).
PD-L1 (Programed Death-Ligand 1, CD274) also binds CD80, inhibits CD8 cytotoxic T cells, stimulates Treg.

Fas protein (CD95) is a 319 amino acid 48 kD trans membrane protein containing a death domain. It trimerizes when binding to Fas Ligand. It then forms the death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) by aggregating death domains with FADD which then activates caspase 8 eventually leading to apoptosis.
Fas ligand(CD95L) is a homotrimeric type II membrane protein expressed on cytotoxic T lymphocytes that binds to Fas protein.
Soluble Fas ligand is generated by MMP-7 cleavage.
