However, the cloned cDNA coded for a protein of 177 amino acids, prompting these authors to conclude that the signal peptide for sIL-1Ra in the rabbit was larger than in other studied species. However, the amino terminal sequence for this purified rabbit IL-1Ra protein was MQAFRI, corresponding to the hypothesized amino terminal sequence for the smaller molecular weight species of icIL-1Ra found in human neutrophils (12). Subsequent genomic and cDNA cloning of rabbit IL-1Ra indicated the presence of two species corresponding to 17-kDa sIL-1Ra and 18-kDa icIL-1Ra in the human (58).
