HMGB1, IL-1β and IL-18 Assays Discriminate Between Pyroptosis and Necroptosis
Inflammatory responses are characterized by the release of endogenous DAMPs, also known as alarmins. During non-apoptotic programmed or regulated cell death, such as pyroptosis and necroptosis, HMGB1 is released along with other pro-inflammatory molecules.
Due to the significance of HMGB1 in these processes, it is important to be able to accurately and reliably monitor its release.
