Abstract

The interleukin-1 (IL-1)-like cytokine IL-33 is widely assumed to undergo proteolytic maturation by caspase-1. In this issue of Immunity, Lüthi et al. (2009) show that IL-33 is not a caspase-1 substrate. IL-33 is inactivated by caspase-3 and -7 to prevent an inappropriate immune response during apoptosis, but not in necrosis. © 2009 Elsevier Inc.
