|AIF1, G1, IBA1|
|A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human AIF1 (P55008-1) (Met1-Pro147) was expressed with a polyhistide tag at the N-terminus.|
|In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.|
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
|> 85 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Please contact us for more information.|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The recombinant human AIF1 consists of 162 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 18.5 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 18 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile PBS, 10% glycerol, pH 7.4|
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
|Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.|
|A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.|
AIF1, also known as IBA1, is an actin-binding protein. AIF1 is expressed selectively in human macrophage-like cell lines, and in a subset of CD68(+) macrophages in the interstitial and perivascular spaces of human heart allografts. It is expressed in macrophages and neutrophils. AIF1 enhances membrane ruffling and RAC activation. AIF1 enhances the actin-bundling activity of LCP1. It also enhances lymphocyte migration. AIF1 may play a role in macrophage activation and function. It binds calcium and plays a role in RAC signaling and in phagocytosis. It promotes the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and of T-lymphocytes.
