IL18, is a proinflammatory cytokine involved in the development of Th1 cells and in immune response. It can stimulate the NK cells and certain T cells to release IFN gamma which plays an important role in activating the macrophages or other cells. IL18 has been demonstrated to have the potential to enhance Fas ligand-mediated cytotoxicity, which is increased in PE and regulates placental apoptosis. IL18 is synthesized as a 22 kDa precursor and then cleaved into a biologically activate 18 kDa form. This antibody 10663-1-AP is raised against the full length IL18 precursor, and it recognizes both the pre-IL18 and mature IL18 theoretically.
