IL-13 is a Th2-derived pleiotropic cytokine that recently was shown to be a key mediator of allergic asthma. IL-13 mediates its effects via a complex receptor system, which includes the IL-4R alpha-chain, IL-4Ralpha, and at least two other cell surface proteins, IL-13Ralpha1 and IL-13Ralpha2, which specifically bind IL-13. IL-13 has been reported to have very limited effects on mouse B cells. It was unclear whether this was due to a lack of receptor expression, a disproportionate relative expression of the receptor components, or an additional subunit requirement in B cells. To determine the requirements for IL-13 signaling in murine B cells, we examined IL-13-dependent Stat6 activation and CD23 induction in the murine B cell line, A201.1. A201.1 cells responded to murine IL-4 via the type I IL-4R, but were unresponsive to IL-13, and did not express IL-13 receptor. B220(+) splenocytes also failed to signal in response to IL-13 and did not express IL-13 receptor. We transfected A201.1 cells with human IL-4Ralpha, IL-13Ralpha1, or both. Transfectants expressing either human IL-4Ralpha or human IL-13Ralpha1 alone were unable to respond or signal to IL-13. Thus, human IL-13Ralpha1 could not combine with the endogenous murine IL-4Ralpha to generate a functional IL-13R. However, cells transfected with both human IL-4Ralpha and IL-13Ralpha1 responded to IL-13. Thus, the relative lack of IL-13 responsiveness in murine B cells is due to a lack of receptor expression. Furthermore, the heterodimeric interaction between IL-4Ralpha and IL-13Ralpha1 is species specific.
