Our Anti-AIF1/Iba1 rabbit polyclonal primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is produced in-house. It detects mouse AIF1/Iba1 and is antigen affinity purified from pooled serum. It is great for use in WB, ICC.
Western blot of mouse spleen lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~17 kDa AIF1/Iba1 protein.
AIF1, allograft inflammatory factor-1, (also known as Iba1, Ionized calcium binding adaptor molecule 1) is a 17 kDa protein that is a pro-inflammatory molecule that mediates calcium signals (Ito, D. et al 1998). During inflammation, increased expression of AIF1 occurs in microglia, macrophages, T-cells, synoviocytes, and adipocytes (Watano, K., et al, 2001). Expression of AIF-1 has been observed in healthy brains and varies throughout the day, gaining the highest expression in the prefrontal and parietal cortices when sleeping (Romcy-Pereira, R.N, et al, 2009). Increased expression of AIF1 has been observed in several diseases including breast cancer (Liu, S., et al 2008), atherosclerosis (Utans, U., et al, 1995), and rheumatoid arthritis (Kimura, M., et al, 2007).
Antigen Affinity Purified from Pooled Serum
Full-length human AIF1/Iba1 protein expressed in and purified from E. coli.
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
Prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification using a column to which the protein immunogen was coupled.
10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol.
Specific for endogenous levels of the ~17 kDa AIF1/Iba1 protein.
Western blots performed on each lot.
