MANTOVANI biological activity. The two cysteine residues oflL-1~ are essential for activity, whereas exposed lysines are not critical. Mutation studies indicated that arginine 4, leucine 6, threonine 9, arginine 11, histidine 30 and aspartic acid 146 are important for biological activity. Arginine 120 is also important either in stabilizing the tertiary structure or in the interaction with the receptor. , 1990). , 1990). 2), secreted both in unglycosylated (18 kDa) and glycosylated (22 kDa) forms.
