Product information "Interleukin-13, Rhesus Macaque recombinant (rrmIL-13)"
Rhesus Macaque recombinant IL 13 produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 114 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 12.6kDa. IL-13 is an immunoregulatory cytokine produced primarily by activated Th2 cells. IL-13 is involved in several stages of B-cell maturation and differentiation. It up-regulates CD23 and MHC class II expression, and promotes IgE isotype switching of B-cells. This cytokine down-regulates macrophage activity, thereby inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines. This cytokine is found to be critical to the pathogenesis of allergen-induced asthma but operates through mechanisms independent of IgE and eosinophils. This gene, IL-3, IL-5, IL-4, and CSF2 form a cytokine gene cluster on chromosome 5q, with this gene particularly close to IL-4.
