Interleukins 4 and 13
IL4_13
SMART accession number:SM00190
Description: Interleukins-4 and -13 are cytokines involved in inflammatory and immune responses. IL-4 stimulates B and T cells.
Interpro abstract (IPR001325): Interleukin-4 (IL-4) is a cytokine that plays a central role in the control and regulation of the immune and inflammatory system [(PUBMED:3284813), (PUBMED:1693082)]. IL-4 is a participant in several B-cell activation processes. It also stimulates other cell types such as T cells or mast cells. IL-4 is a glycoprotein that contains three disulphide bonds [(PUBMED:1993171)].

Interleukin-13 (IL-13) is a pleiotropic cytokine which may be important in the regulation of the inflammatory and immune responses [(PUBMED:8096327)]. The sequences of IL-4 and IL-13 are distantly related. This entry represetns both IL-4 and IL-13.
