Cat.No. : IL13-1251H
Product Overview : Recombinant human IL-13 produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 113 amino acids with two pairs of disulfate bond and having a molecular mass of approximately 12.3kDa.
Description : IL-13 is an immunoregulatory cytokine that plays a key role in the pathogenesis of allergic asthma and atopy. It is secreted by Th1 and Th2 CD4+ T cells, NK cells, visceral smooth muscle cells, eosinophils, mast cells, and basophils. IL-13 circulates as a monomer with two internal disulfide bonds that contribute to a bundled four α helix configuration. Mature human IL-13 shares 57%, 59%, and 94% amino acid sequence identity with mouse, rat, and rhesus IL-13, respectively. Despite the low homology, it exhibits cross-species activity between human, mouse, and rat. IL13 has diverse activities on numerous cell types. On macrophages, IL13 suppresses the production of proinflammatory cytokines and other cytotoxic substances. On B cells, IL13 induces immunoglobulin class switching to IgE, upregulates the expression of MHC class II, CD71, CD72, and CD23, and costimulates proliferation. IL-13 upregulates IL-6 while down-regulating IL-1 and TNFα production by fibroblasts and endothelial cells. IL-13R-α2 regulates the bioavailability of both IL-13 and IL-4 and is overexpressed in glioma and several bronchial pathologies. Compared to wild type IL-13, the atopy-associated R110Q variant of IL-13 elicits increased responsiveness from eosinophils that express low levels of IL-13R-α2.
Source : E. coli
Species : Human
Form : Lyophilized from a 0.2μm filtered solution in PBS containing 0.1% HSA, pH7.4.
Bio-activity : Measured in a cell proliferation assay using TF-1 cell line. The specific activity shall be not less than 1 x 10^6 IU/mg.
Endotoxin : ≤1EU/μg, determined by the LAL method.
