Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Interleukin (IL)-33 is a recently identified pleiotropic cytokine, which can orchestrate complex innate and adaptive immune responses in immunity and disease. It has been characterized as a cytokine of the IL-1 family and affects a wide range of immune cells by signalling through its receptor ST2L. Accumulating evidence suggests a crucial role of IL-33/ST2 in inducing and modifying host immune responses against a variety of pathogens including parasites, bacteria, viruses and fungi as well as sterile insults of both endogenous and exogenous source. In this review, we endeavour to give a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge about the role of IL-33 and its receptor ST2 in host defence against infections.
