Specifications

IL-13 is an immunoregulatory cytokine produced primarily by activated Th2 cells, and also by mast cells and NK cells.Targeted deletion of IL-13 in mice resulted in impaired Th2 cell development and indicated an important role for IL-13 in the expulsion of gastrointestinal parasites.IL-13 exerts anti-inflammatory effects on monocytes and macrophages and it inhibits the expression of inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1beta, TNF-alpha, IL-6 and IL-8.IL-13 has also been shown to enhance B cell proliferation and to induce isotype switching resulting in increased production of IgE.Blocking of IL-13 activity inhibits the pathophysiology of asthma.Human and murine IL-13 is cross-species reactive.A variant of IL-13 shows enhanced functional activity compared with the wild type IL-13. This genetic variant, termed human IL-13 analog, is a mature 114 amino acid protein with a substitution of Q for R at position 112.
Catalog #143385
Biological ActivityThis IL-13 analog shows a two fold increase, relative to wild type IL-13, in bioactivity as measured by the in-vitro dose dependent activation of STAT6 and IL-13 dependent gene induction in transfected A201.1 cells. This analog has also been shown to exhibit increased in vivo activity compared to wild type IL-13, as measured by the induction of airway hyper-responsiveness.

Quality ControlVerified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).
Endotoxin<0.1ng/ug of protein (<1EU/ug).
Protein ContentVerified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.
Storage and StabilityStore lyophilized products at -20°C. For reconstituted solutions of most products, we recommend short-term storage at 4°C. For longer term storage the protein solution should be stored with a carrier protein (eg. 0.1% BSA) in working aliquots and stored frozen at -20°C. Additional freeze/thaw cycles may cause some denaturation of the protein.
