It is chemotactic for neutrophils and mononuclear cells in vitro, and results in tissue edema and local inflammation [126]. Three proteins comprise the IL-1 family, two of which are agonists, IL-1a and IL-1b; the third is IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra). IL-1a and IL-1b are derived from different genes but are functionally similar, and both bind to the same receptor. Although they exhibit similar biological activities, IL-1a and IL-1b differ in the manner in which they are processed and secreted.

IL-1a is localized in the cytosol or cell membrane and is believed to regulate the intracellular environment. In contrast, IL-1b is first cleaved by interleukin-1b-converting enzyme (ICE) to its mature active form and then secreted extracellularly [127]. Keratinocytederived IL-1a is a potent mediator of a wide variety of inflammatory responses, including secretion of PGs from dermal fibroblasts and the production of acute phase reactants [128,129], and its overexpression in murine epidermis produces spontaneous inflammatory lesions [130].
