Demonstration and Characterization of Human Intracellular Interleukin-1
Since the initial report by Unanue and Kiely (1977), others have also shown that in addition to the interleukin-1 (IL-1) released into the medium (extracellular, EC), mononuclear phagocytes (MP) and related cell lines also contain high levels of intracellular (IC) IL-1 activity which can be measured following lysis of the cells (Mizel and Rosenstreich, 1979; Gery et al., 1981a; Iribe et al., 1982).
