The following IL13 gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the IL13 gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: This gene encodes an immunoregulatory cytokine produced
primarily by activated Th2 cells. This cytokine 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 through 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. [provided
