Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified IC
HIWI, also called PIWIL1 is an 861aa, 99kD (predicted) cytoplasmic protein of the PIWI subgroup of the Argonaute family. PIWI domains bind a class of ~29-30 nucleotide RNAs termed piRNAs. PIWIL1 orthologs are expressed with piRNAs in germ cells and are essential for spermatogenesis in mice. CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cell PIWIL1 is downregulated upon differentiation. When overexpressed in leukemic cell lines, PIWIL1 inhibits growth and induces apoptosis. Human PIWIL1 shares 95% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat PIWIL1.
