The IL13 gene encodes the cytokine Interleukin 13 on chromosome 5q31 with a length of 1.4kb. IL13 and IL4 exhibit a 30% of sequence similarity and have a similar structure. IL-13 is secreted by many cell types, but especially T helper type 2 (Th2) cells, and is a mediator of allergic inflammation and disease.
