Neutralizing monoclonal antibody against murine IL-13

InvivoGen provides a recombinant fully mouse anti-mouse IL-13 monoclonal antibody (mAb) that was previously extracted from hybridoma. It is now expressed and produced in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, ensuring reliability and lot-to-lot reproducibility. Thereby, common hybridoma-related drawbacks such as the generation of non-relevant mAbs containing aberrant light chains are avoided [1].

The sequence of Anti-mIL-13-mIgG1 is 100% murine (constant and variable regions), as the original clone (clone 8H8) was raised in mice using a proprietary method. This feature allows for reduced immunogenicity and risks of fatal hypersensitivity reactions upon repeated mAb injections into mice [2-4].


InvivoGen provides this antibody in two grades:

  • In vitro use: Anti-mIL-13-mIgG1
  • In vivo use: Anti-mIL-13-mIgG1 InvivoFit™


All InvivoFit™ products are handled in a clean room, filter-sterilized, and tested for bacterial contaminants. Additionally, this grade guarantees low levels of endotoxins (<1 EU/ml). The buffer formulation is specifically adapted for in vivo studies.


Key features:

  • Potent and specific neutralizing activity against mIL-13
  • Sequence is 100% murine
  • Murine IgG1 isotype (constant region)
  • Free from non-relevant mAbs found in hybridoma-based productions
  • Produced in animal-free facilities and defined media
  • Low aggregation < 5%
  • InvivoFit™ grade is available


Anti-mIL-13-mIgG1 is designed to efficiently neutralize the biological activity of mIL-13. Interleukin (IL-)13 is a multifunctional cytokine that plays an important role in the regulation of inflammation and immune responses [5,6].

Dose-dependent neutralization of mIL-13 signaling
Dose-dependent neutralization of mIL-13 signaling

Anti-mIL-13-mIgG1 InvivoFit™ is a potent neutralization antibody. Increasing concentrations of Anti-mIL-13-mIgG1 InvivoFit™ were incubated for 30 minutes with the recombinant cytokine mIL-13 (5 ng/ml) prior to the addition of HEK-Blue™ IL-4/IL-13 cells. After overnight incubation, SEAP activity in the cell culture supernatant was assessed using QUANTI-Blue™ Solution. Data are shown in percentage (%) of neutralization.

Interleukin 13 (IL-13) is a pleiotropic cytokine that plays an important role in inflammation, fibrosis, allergic diseases and cancer. It is mainly produced by activated T cells and regulates several subtypes of T helper (Th) cells by affecting their transformation, including Th1, Th2, and Th17 cells. Previous studies have revealed that IL-13 is implicated in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and type 1 diabetes (T1D) [1].

IL-13 also exerts its anti-inflammatory effects by inhibiting the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as TNF‑α. The biological functions of IL-13 overlap with those of IL-4. In fact, both IL-4 and IL-13 can bind to the same receptor complex, IL-13 receptor (IL-13R), which is composed of two subunits IL-4Rα and IL-13Rα1 [2]. The binding of IL-­4 or IL-13 to IL-13R instigates a signaling cascade involving the activation of receptor-associated Janus kinases (JAK1 and Tyk2) and the nuclear translocation of STAT6 (Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 6). The nuclear translocation of STAT6 ultimately leads to the induction of gene expression by IL-13 [3].
