IL 13 Rhesus Macaque Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 114 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 12.6kDa.The IL 13 Rhesus Macaque is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
IL13 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 throµgh mechanisms independent of IgE and eosinophils. This gene, IL3, IL5, IL4, and CSF2 form a cytokine gene cluster on chromosome 5q, with this gene particularly close to IL4.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2?m filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4 containing 5% trehalose.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IL-13 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized IL-13 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IL-13 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
