|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-Human Interleukin-4 antibody recognizes human IL-4 (Interleukin-4), also known as B-cell stimulatory factor 1, a 129 amino acid pleiotropic cytokine which interacts with multiple cell lineages, including T cells, fibroblasts and haematopoietic cells, and is one of the most important factors involved in B cell IgG1 and IgE class switching.IL-4 signalling through the IL-4 receptor (IL-4R), under the influence of Stat6, induces the differentiation of CD4+ T cells into Th2 helper cells, which themselves then secrete IL-4 along with IL-5, IL-6, IL-10 and IL-13. Excessive secretion of IL-4 by Th2 helper cells has been linked with allergy and elevated IgE levels.|
