Mouse IL-13

Mouse IL-13

IL-13 stands for interleukin 13. Mouse IL-13 is a recombinant protein optimized for use in cell culture, differentiation studies, and functional assays.


Mouse IL-13 can be used for a variety of applications including:
  • Inhibition of monocyte and macrophage activation.
  • B cell activation.

Background information

IL-13 is an immune regulatory cytokine produced primarily by activated Tʜ2 cells as well as mast cells and NK cells. Signaling through the IL-13 receptor activates the JAK/STAT and IRS-1/IRS-2 pathways. IL-13 has anti-inflammatory effects on monocytes and macrophages and it inhibits the expression of inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1β, TNF-α, 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. Although IL-13 is involved in the pathogenesis of airway diseases such as asthma, it also plays a protective role for the mucosa, via induction of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and other anti-inflammatory effects. In addition, IL-13 plays an important role in the expulsion of gastrointestinal parasites.

Quality description

cytokines are suitable for a wide variety of cell culture applications. They are sterile-filtered prior to lyophilization. Generally, endotoxin levels are <0.1 ng/μg (<1 EU/μg), and purities are >95%. The biological activity is tested in appropriate bioassays.
