|Product Specification Sheet|
IL-1β is produced by activated macrophages. IL-1β stimulates thymocyte proliferation by inducing IL-2 release, B-cell maturation and proliferation, and fibroblast growth factor activity. IL-1β belongs to the IL-1 family of proteins that are involved in the inflammatory response. IL-1β in most situations requires the inflammasome complex to be cleaved and secreted.
