The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
The activity is determined by the ability to induce the proliferation of D10S cells and is typically less than 1 ng/mL.

Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped at 4°C. Store at -20°C long term. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein on reconstitution (0.1% HSA or BSA).
This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
Centrifuge vial before opening. When reconstituting the product, gently pipet and wash down the sides of the vial to ensure full
recovery of the protein into solution. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized product with sterile 20 mM HCL at a
concentration of 0.1 mg/mL, which can be further diluted into other aqueous solutions. DO NOT VORTEX.

Nuclear factor for high endothelial venules
Nuclear factor from high endothelial venules
Cytokine that binds to and signals through the IL1RL1/ST2 receptor which in turn activates NF-kappa-B and MAPK signaling pathways in target cells (PubMed:16286016). Involved in the maturation of Th2 cells inducing the secretion of T-helper type 2-associated cytokines. Also involved in activation of mast cells, basophils, eosinophils and natural killer cells. Acts as a chemoattractant for Th2 cells, and may function as an "alarmin", that amplifies immune responses during tissue injury (PubMed:17853410, PubMed:18836528). In quiescent endothelia the uncleaved form is constitutively and abundantly expressed, and acts as a chromatin-associated nuclear factor with transcriptional repressor properties, it may sequester nuclear NF-kappaB/RELA, lowering expression of its targets (PubMed:21734074). This form is rapidely lost upon angiogenic or proinflammatory activation (PubMed:18787100).
Expressed at high level in high endothelial venules found in tonsils, Peyer patches and mesenteric lymph nodes. Almost undetectable in placenta.
Belongs to the IL-1 family. Highly divergent.
The homeodomain-like HTH domain mediates nuclear localization and heterochromatin association.
The full length protein can be released from cells and is able to signal via the IL1RL1/ST2 receptor. However, proteolytic processing by CSTG/cathepsin G and ELANE/neutrophil elastase produces C-terminal peptides that are more active than the unprocessed full length protein. May also be proteolytically processed by calpains (PubMed:19596270). Proteolytic cleavage mediated by apoptotic caspases including CASP3 and CASP7 results in IL33 inactivation (PubMed:19559631). In vitro proteolytic cleavage by CASP1 was reported (PubMed:16286016) but could not be confirmed in vivo (PubMed:19465481) suggesting that IL33 is probably not a direct substrate for that caspase.
