The annotation and conditions in this rule are derived from the following entries: Q14116 (IL18_HUMAN), P70380 (IL18_MOUSE)

If a protein meets these conditions... i

Common conditions

    • Matches PIR Superfamily signature PIRSF015162
    • sequence length = 173 - 200
    • taxon = Vertebrata
    • fragment ≠ the sequence is fragmented

Special conditions

... then these annotations are applied i

  • A proinflammatory cytokine primarily involved in polarized T-helper 1 (Th1) cell and natural killer (NK) cell immune responses. Upon binding to IL18R1 and IL18RAP, forms a signaling ternary complex which activates NF-kappa-B, triggering synthesis of inflammatory mediators. Synergizes with IL12/interleukin-12 to induce IFNG synthesis from T-helper 1 (Th1) cells and natural killer (NK) cells.
