Mouse IL-13 Culture Media Quantikine ELISA, 2 Plate Summary
The Quantikine Mouse IL-13 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse IL-13 levels in cell culture supernates. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse IL-13 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant mouse IL-13 accurately. Results obtained using natural mouse IL-13 showed dos...e curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse IL-13.
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.

IL-13 (Interleukin-13) plays a key role in the pathogenesis of allergy, cancer, and tissue fibrosis. It is secreted by several helper T cell subsets, NK cells, mast cells, eosinophils, basophils, and visceral smooth muscle cells. IL-13 suppresses the production of proinflammatory cytokines and other cytotoxic substances by macrophages, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells. It promotes B cell activation, immunoglobulin class switching to IgE, and the upregulation of CD23/Fc epsilon RII. IL-13 signals through a receptor complex containing IL-13 R alpha 1 and IL-4 R alpha. This complex also functions as the type 2 IL-4 receptor. IL-13 R alpha 2 binds IL-13 and prevents IL-13 from signaling through the IL-13 R alpha 1/IL-4 R alpha complex. IL-13-bound IL-13 R alpha 2 can directly promote tumor cell invasiveness and the development of tissue fibrosis.
