Mouse IL-13 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse IL-13 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse IL-13 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Interleukin(IL)-13 is a major inducer of fibrosis in many chronic infectious and autoimmune diseases. Recombinant IL-13 protein inhibits inflammatory cytokine production induced by lipopolysaccharide in human peripheral blood monocytes. Moreover, it synergizes with IL-13 in regulating interferon-gamma synthesis in large granular lymphocytes. Interleukin-13 may be critical in regulating inflammatory and immune responses. IL-13 and IL-4 are two cytokines produced by T helper type 2 cells, mast cells, and basophils. In addition to their physiological roles, these cytokines are also implicated in pathological conditions such as asthma and allergy. The genes encoding human IL-4 and IL-13 are located on segment q23-31 of chromosome 5.4 Recombinant mouse IL-13 is a mixture of Ser26-Phe131 amino acids with the molecular mass of 11.5KDa.
