|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-RIG-I antibody recognizes human Retinoic acid-inducible gene 1 protein (RIG-I), also known as RIG-1 or DEAD-box protein 58. RIG-I is a receptor found in the cytoplasm that recognizes viral RNA from replicating viruses in infected cells. Upon activation with intracellular RNA, a cascade is triggered resulting in the activation of NF-kappa-B, and the eventual induction of antiviral cytokines such as IFN-beta and RANTES. RIG-I is essential for the production of interferons in response to RNA viruses and as such play a key role in innate immunity.|
