  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-13 (Interleukin-13) Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human IL-13 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human IL-13 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IL-13 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human IL-13 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of IL-13 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    Get results in 90 minutes with Human IL-13 ELISA Kit (ab178014) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.

  • Function
    Cytokine (PubMed:8096327, PubMed:8097324). Inhibits inflammatory cytokine production (PubMed:8096327). Synergizes with IL2 in regulating interferon-gamma synthesis (PubMed:8096327). May be critical in regulating inflammatory and immune responses (PubMed:8096327, PubMed:8097324). Positively regulates IL31RA expression in macrophages.
