Kinetic analysis of the interleukin-13 receptor complex.


Interleukin (IL)-13 is a key cytokine associated with the asthmatic phenotype. It signals via its cognate receptor, a complex of IL-13 receptor alpha1 chain (IL-13Ralpha1) with IL-4Ralpha; however, a second protein, IL-13Ralpha2, also binds IL-13. To determine the binding contributions of the individual components of the IL-13 receptor to IL-13, we have… (More)
