Gene Summary

Predicted to enable interleukin-13 receptor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis and positive regulation of macrophage activation. Acts upstream of or within cellular response to cytokine stimulus; inflammatory response; and positive regulation of immune effector process. Located in cytoplasm; external side of plasma membrane; and extracellular space. Is expressed in gut; liver; male reproductive gland or organ; and thymus. Used to study atopic dermatitis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including allergic disease (multiple); autoimmune disease (multiple); diffuse scleroderma; lung disease (multiple); and nose disease (multiple). Orthologous to human IL13 (interleukin 13). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
