Relevance: Thiol protease that cleaves IL-1 beta between an Asp and an Ala, releasing the mature cytokine which is involved in a variety of inflammatory processes. Important for defense against pathogens. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory elent binding proteins (SREBPs). Can also promote apoptosis.
Reference: A novel heterodimeric cysteine protease is required for interleukin-1 beta processing in monocytes.Thornberry N.A., Bull H.G., Calaycay J.R., Chapman K.T., Howard A.D., Kostura M.J., Miller D.K., Molineaux S.M., Weidner J.R., Aunins J., Elliston K.O., Ayala J.M., Casano F.J., Chin J., Ding G.J.-F., Egger L.A., Gaffney E.P., Limjuco G. , Palyha O.C., Raju M., Rolando A.M., Salley J.P., Yamin T.-T., Lee T.D., Shively J.E., McCross M., Mumford R.A., Schmidt J.A., Tocci M.J.Nature 356:768-774(1992)
Purity: Greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Storage: The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20℃/-80℃. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20℃/-80℃.
Notes: Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4℃ for up to one week.
