Cell Proliferation Induced by IL‑13 and Neutralization by Mouse IL‑13 Antibody. Recombinant Mouse IL-13 (413-ML) stimulates proliferation in the TF-1 human erythroleukemic cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Mouse IL-13 (10 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Mouse IL-13 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF-413-NA). The ND50 is typically 0.05-0.15 µg/mL.

Detection of Mouse IL-13 by Immunohistochemistry Histological lung sections of a p66Shc−/− mouse at 7 months after CS exposure.(A) Positive immunostaining for MAC-3 confirms that the free alveolar cells are predominantly macrophages. A small number of macrophages are also present in the peribronchiolar infiltrates. (B) Representative lung section showing alveolar multinucleated macrophages containing fine granular brown cytoplasmic particles that stain with Perls’ Prussian blue (C). (D) The peribronchiolar areas of inflammation are characterized by a large amount of lymphocytes and a small number of pigmented cells that also stain with Perl’s Prussian blue (E). (F) Many fascin positive cells (histiocytes) are present in the peribronchiolar areas. (A) and (F): Scale bars = 80 μm; (B-E): Scale bars = 40 μm.

Background: IL-13

IL-13 is a 17 kDa immunoregulatory cytokine that plays a key role in the pathogenesis of allergic asthma and atopy. It is secreted by Th1 and Th2 CD4+ T cells, NK cells, visceral smooth muscle cells, eosinophils, mast cells, and basophils (1-3). IL-13 circulates as a monomer with two internal disulfide bonds that contribute to a bundled four alpha -helix configuration (4, 5). Mature mouse IL-13 shares 57%, 75%, and 58% amino acid sequence identity with human, rat, and rhesus IL-13, respectively. Despite the low homology, it exhibits cross-species activity between human, mouse, and rat (6, 7). IL-13 has diverse activities on numerous cell types (8). On macrophages, IL-13 suppresses the production of proinflammatory cytokines and other cytotoxic substances. On B cells, IL-13 induces immunoglobulin class switching to IgE, upregulates the expression of MHC class II, CD71, CD72, and CD23, and costimulates proliferation. IL-13 upregulates IL-6 while downregulating IL-1 and TNF-alpha production by fibroblasts and endothelial cells. IL-13 binds with low affinity to IL-13 R alpha 1, triggering IL-13 R alpha 1 association with IL-4 R alpha. This high affinity receptor complex also functions as the type 2 IL-4 receptor complex (9, 10). Additionally, IL-13 binds with high affinity to IL-13 R alpha 2 which is expressed intracellularly, on the cell surface, and as a soluble molecule (11-14). IL-13 R alpha 2 regulates the bioavailability of both IL-13 and IL-4 and is overexpressed in glioma and several bronchial pathologies (10, 15, 16). Compared to wild type IL-13, the atopy-associated R110Q variant of IL-13 elicits increased responsiveness from eosinophils that express low levels of IL-13 R alpha 2 (17).
