Gene: IL13 (interleukin 13) Homo sapiens
Symbol: IL13
Name: interleukin 13
Description: Predicted to have cytokine activity and interleukin-13 receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of complement-dependent cytotoxicity; negative regulation of endothelial cell apoptotic process; and positive regulation of interleukin-10 production. Localizes to extracellular region. Implicated in several diseases, including Graves' disease; allergic hypersensitivity disease (multiple); dermatitis (multiple); lung disease (multiple); and nose disease (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including Plasmodium falciparum malaria; autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); cystic fibrosis; lung disease (multiple); and scleroderma (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
