|Calculated MW||H=49 KDa|
|Other Names||Interleukin-13 receptor subunit alpha-1, IL-13 receptor subunit alpha-1, IL-13R subunit alpha-1, IL-13R-alpha-1, IL-13RA1, Cancer/testis antigen 19, CT19, CD213a1, IL13RA1, IL13R, IL13RA|
|Target/Specificity||This IL13RA1 antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 207-238 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human IL13RA1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||IL13RA1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Binds with low affinity to interleukin-13 (IL13). Together with IL4RA can form a functional receptor for IL13. Also serves as an alternate accessory protein to the common cytokine receptor gamma chain for interleukin-4 (IL4) signaling, but cannot replace the function of IL2RG in allowing enhanced interleukin-2 (IL2) binding activity.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Highest levels in heart, liver, skeletal muscle and ovary; lowest levels in brain, lung and kidney. Also found in B-cells, T-cells and endothelial cells|
