1H, 13C, and 15N resonance assignments for the pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-36α
Interleukin-36α (IL-36α) is a recently characterised member of the interleukin-1 superfamily. It is involved in the pathogenesis of inflammatory arthritis in one third of psoriasis patients. By binding of IL-36α to its receptor IL-36R via the NF-κB pathway other cytokines involved in inflammatory and apoptotic cascade are activated. The efficacy of complex formation is controlled by N-terminal processing. To obtain a more detailed view on the structure function relationship we performed a heteronuclear multidimensional NMR investigation and here report the 1H, 13C, and 15N resonance assignments for the backbone and side chain nuclei of the pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-36α.
