|Centrifuge vial prior to opening. Reconstitute the antibody with 500 µl sterile PBS and the final concentration is 200 µg/ml.
|Stability and Storage
|Lyophilized samples are stable for 2 years from date of receipt when stored at -20°C. Reconstituted antibody can be aliquoted and stored frozen at < -20°C for at least six months without detectable loss of activity.
|This antibody was produced from a hybridoma (mouse myeloma fused with spleen cells from a mouse) immunized with human recombinant protein of IL-13R a1 extracellular domain.
|recombinant human IL-13R alpha 1 EC domain
|IL13RA1; NR4; CD213A1; IL-13Ra
|Two members of the type 5 subfamily of type I cytokine receptors can serve as receptors for IL-13. IL-13 can bind to IL-13 R alpha 1 (CD213a1; previously designated IL-13 R alpha or NR4) with low affinity, then recruits the IL-4 R alpha chain to form a high affinity receptor, causing downstream STAT6 activation. Alternately, IL-13 can bind IL-13 R alpha 2 (CD213a2) with high affinity; this interaction does not cause activation of STAT6, but does induce TGF-beta production. IL-13 R alpha 1 and IL-13 R alpha 2 each have three extracellular fibronectin type III domains, two cytokine receptor homology modules and a WSXWS motif typical of the class I cytokine receptor family, but IL-13 R alpha 2 has a much shorter cytoplasmic tail. IL-13 R subunits can be expressed on monocytes, macrophages, fibroblasts, human B cells, basophils, eosinophils, endothelial cells, and smooth muscle cells.
