Immunofluorescence of AIF1/IBA1-FLAG transfected COS-7 cells using chicken α-AIF1/IBA1 (green) and mouse α-flag tag (red). Yellow/orange staining shows 100% correspondence between the two antibodies for recognition of transfected cells. Blue staining is DAPI and stains nuclei of both transfected and untransfected cells.

Protein Name / Synonyms: Allograft inflammatory factor 1, AIF-1, Ionized calcium-binding adapter molecule 1, Protein G1

Target Description: 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).

Gene ID: AIF1 IBA1

Physical State: Liquid

Conjugate: Unconjugated

Production Notes: Eggs from hens hyperimmunized with target were used to prepare an IgY fraction which was then subjected to antigen-specific affinity purification

Validation and Application Notes

Molecular Weight: 17 kDa

Quality Control

Each new lot of this antibody is tested to confirm that it recognizes a single immunoreactive band of expected molecular weight when used to probe brain lysate.

Storage

Store at 4°C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibodies should have a shelf life of at least twelve months, provided they remain sterile. Do not freeze these antibodies unless you want to store them for longer periods of time. Note, however, that each time an antibody preparation is frozen, about half of its binding activity is lost.
