SPECIES REACTIVITY:Human
TESTED APPLICATIONS:ELISA, ICC, IF, WB
APPLICATIONS:FLIP can be used for detection of FLIP by Western blot at 1:1000 dilution. 35 kDa and 25 kDa bands can be detected. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 2 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 10 μg/mL.
USER NOTE:Optimal dilutions for each application to be determined by the researcher.
POSITIVE CONTROL:1) Cat. No. 1205 - Jurkat Cell Lysate
 2) Cat. No. 17-001 - HeLa Cell Slide
PREDICTED MOLECULAR WEIGHT:35 kDa and 25 kDa
SPECIFICITY:Antibody recognizes human and murine FLIPgamma and FLIPdelta but not FLIPalpha and FLIPbeta.
IMMUNOGEN:FLIP antibody was raised against a 19 amino acid peptide near the carboxy terminus of human FLIP.

The immunogen is located within amino acids 180 - 230 of FLIP.

Background

BACKGROUND:FLIP Antibody: Apoptosis is related to many diseases and induced by a family of cell death receptors and their ligands. Cell death signals are transduced by death domain (DD)-containing adapter molecules and members of the ICE/CED-3 protease family. Caspases-8 (FLICE) and -10 (FLICE2) are two pivotal members in the ICE/CED-3 protease family. FLICE-inhibitory proteins were identified in virus and human and designated v-FLIPs and c-FLIPs, respectively. The human FLIPs were also cloned by several labs independently and termed Casper, I-FLICE, FLAME-1, CASH, CLARP and usurpin. FLIP contains two death effector domains (DEDs) and a caspase-like domain. FLIP interacts with adapter protein FADD and caspase-8 and 10, and potently inhibits apoptosis induced by all known death receptors CD95, DR3, TRAIL-R and TNFR1. Four splice variants of c-FLIPs have been identified and termed FLIPalpha, beta, gamma, and delta, respectively.
