Human IL13 was originally identified by differential screening of an anti-CD28 activated human peripheral blood mononuclear cell cDNA library as an induction-specific novel cytokine. It was also isolated from cDNA libraries of human T cell clones using the murine IL13 (P600) cDNA as a probe. Human IL13, a pleiotropic cytokine, is produced by activated Th0, Th1-like, Th2-like, and CD8 T cells. The gene for human IL13 maps to chromosome 5 and is closely linked to the genes for IL3, IL4, IL5, and GMCSF.
