Interleukin-13 upregulates eotaxin expression in airway epithelial cells by a STAT6-dependent mechanism.


Interleukin (IL)-13 is a T helper 2-derived cytokine that has recently been implicated in allergic airway responses. We hypothesized that IL-13 may regulate expression of eotaxin in airway epithelium. We found that IL-13 upregulated eotaxin messenger RNA and protein synthesis in the airway epithelial cell line BEAS-2B; this effect showed synergy with tumor… (More)
