AIF1 (Allograft Inflammatory Factor 1, AIF-1, DASS-82G15.2, G1, IBA1, IRT-1, Em:AF129756.17, Interferon gamma Responsive Transcript, IRT-1, Ionized Calcium-binding Adapter Molecule, Protein G1) (FITC)
Description:
AIF-1 is a 17kD IFN-gamma inducible Ca2+-binding EF-hand protein, associated with chronic inflammatory processes. AIF-1 is constitutively expressed in lymphatic tissue and is up-regulated in monocytes/macrophages under various pathological conditions such as chronic rejection of allografts and in autoimmune lesions. In the brain, a subset of microglial cells constitutively express AIF-1. Increased numbers of AIF-1 immunoreactive macrophage/microglial cells were observed in focal brain infarctions, traumatic brain injury, gliomas, uveitis and in inflammatory lesions of a rat model of autoimmune disease, autoimmune encephalomyelitis and neuritis. Several Ca2+-binding peptides have been associated with monocyte activation, in particular members of the S-100 supergene-family. AIF-1 is a Ca2+-binding peptide which is not a member of the S-100 gene cluster but is located within the HLA class III genomic region.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin fixed paraffin embedded): 1:50
Optimal dilutions to be dIetermined by the researcher

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and store at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer. FITC conjugates are sensitive to light.
