Signal transduction of IL-13 and its role in the pathogenesis of bronchial asthma.

Abstract

Interleukin-13 (IL-13) is a Th2-type cytokine, secreted from CD4(+) T cells, mast cells, basophils and eosinophils. The human IL-13 gene locates at 5q31, generating a cluster with other Th2-type cytokines such as IL-4 and IL-5. Although the homology between IL-13 and IL-4 at the amino acid level is only about 25%, the IL-13 structure determined by NMR is… (More)
