Interleukin 33 (IL-33) is a 32kDa proinflammatory cytokine that may also regulate gene transcription in producer cells. IL-33 is structurally related to IL-1, which induces helper T cells to produce type 2 cytokines and acts throµgh the receptor IL1RL-1 (IL1 receptor-like-1), which is known also as ST2. Binding of IL-33 to this receptor activates NF-kappa-B and MAP kinases and induces in vitro Th2 cells to produce cytokines. In vivo, IL-33 induces expression of IL-4, IL-5, IL-13 and leads to severe pathological changes in mucosal organs and in vitro, it can be divided to N-terminal fragment of 12kDa and C-terminal fragment of 18kDa by cleavage of caspase-1.

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The Mouse IL-33 was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution containing 20mM Phosphate buffer pH-7.4, 150mM sodium chloride, 1mM EDTA and 2mM b-ME.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IL-33 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized IL-33 Recombinant althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL-33 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
