SPECIES REACTIVITY:Human, Mouse, Rat
TESTED APPLICATIONS:ELISA, ICC, IF, WB
APPLICATIONS:IRF4 antibody can be used for detection of IRF4 by Western blot at 0.5 μg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 10 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 μg/mL.
USER NOTE:Optimal dilutions for each application to be determined by the researcher.
POSITIVE CONTROL:1) Cat. No. 1225 - Ramos Cell Lysate
 2) Cat. No. 17-005 - Jurkat Cell Slide
SPECIFICITY:IRF4 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other IRF protein family members. IRF4 often migrates at a higher than predicted molecular weight in SDS-PAGE.
IMMUNOGEN:IRF4 antibody was raised against a 16 amino acid synthetic peptide near the carboxy terminus of human IRF4.

The immunogen is located within the last 50 amino acids of IRF4.
HOST SPECIES:Rabbit

Properties

PURIFICATION:IRF4 Antibody is affinity chromatography purified via peptide column.
PHYSICAL STATE:Liquid
BUFFER:IRF4 Antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.
CONCENTRATION:1 mg/mL
STORAGE CONDITIONS:IRF4 antibody can be stored at 4 ˚C, stable for one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.
CLONALITY:Polyclonal
ISOTYPE:IgG
CONJUGATE:Unconjugated

Background

BACKGROUND:IRF4 Antibody: Interferons (IFNs) are involved in a multitude of immune interactions during viral infections and play a major role in both the induction and regulation of innate and adaptive antiviral mechanisms. During infection, host-virus interactions signal downstream molecules such as transcription factors such as IFN regulatory factor-3 (IRF3) which can act to stimulate transcription of IFN-alpha/beta genes. Another member, IRF7 has been shown to play a role in the transcriptional activation of virus-inducible cellular genes, including interferon beta chain genes. IRF4 expression is tightly regulated in resting primary T cells and plays an essential role in the homeostasis and function of mature lymphocytes. IRF4 is induced by Toll-like receptor (TLR) activation and acts as a negative regulator of TLR signaling.
