Description

Description

Description: The eBio13A antibody reacts with mouse IL-13. IL-13 is a cytokine produced mainly by Th2 cells, but also by antigen-primed CD8 T cells. IL-13 has a strong involvement in allergic inflammation and parasitic clearing and in cancer models has been shown to have either inhibitory or stimulatory activity depending on the tumor. In humans, IL-13 is found to play a role in isotype switching in B cells. IL-13 is implicating in down modulating macrophage activity, through the reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12) Applications Reported: This eBio13A antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This eBio13A antibody has been tested by intracellular staining and flow cytometric analysis of Th2 polarized mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. eFluor® 660 is a replacement for Alexa Fluor® 647. eFluor® 660 emits at 659 nm and is excited with the red laser (633 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome.

Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 668 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. IL-13 is an immunoregulatory cytokine produced primarily by activated Th2 cells, and is involved in regulating inflammatory and immune responses. IL-13 down-regulates macrophage activity, thereby inhibiting the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, and is involved in allergen-induced asthma through mechanisms independent of IgE and eosinophils. IL-13 also regulates several stages of B cell maturation and differentiation, up-regulates CD23 and MHC class II expression, and promotes IgE isotype switching of B cells. Structurally, IL-13 closely resembles IL-3, IL-4, IL-5 and GM-CSF. The gene encoding IL-13, IL3, IL5, IL4, and CSF2 form a cytokine gene cluster on chromosome 5q, with the IL-13 gene particularly close to IL4.
