Detects human IL-13 R alpha 2 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, this antibody shows approximately 5% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human (rh) IL‑4 R and rhIL‑9 R and no cross-reactivity with rhIL‑5 R alpha, rhIL‑5 R beta, rhIL‑13 R alpha 1, or recombinant mouse IL‑13 R alpha 2.

Detection of Human IL‑13 R alpha 2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human placenta tissue and human testis tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 5 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human IL‑13 R alpha 2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB614) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for IL‑13 R alpha 2 at approximately 50-55 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: IL-13 R alpha 2
Two type I membrane proteins belonging to the hemopoietin receptor family have been cloned and shown to bind IL-13 with high affinity. The lower affinity IL-13 binding protein is now referred to as IL-13 R alpha 1 and is also known as CD213a. IL-13 R alpha 1 combines with IL-4 R alpha to form a high affinity receptor complex capable of transducing an IL-13-dependent proliferative signal. The higher affinity IL-13 binding protein, now referred to as IL-13 R alpha 2, does not induce a signal and acts as a decoy receptor.
