|Calculated MW||159582 Da|
|Application & Usage||The antibody detects recombinant human NAIP in extracts from Sf21 insect cells by Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml).|
|Other Names||NAIP, BIRC1, NLRB1, FLJ42520 , psiNAIP|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) affinity-purified rabbit anti-NAIP polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||NAIP Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Anti-apoptotic protein which acts by inhibiting the activities of CASP3, CASP7 and CASP9. Can inhibit the autocleavage of pro-CASP9 and cleavage of pro-CASP3 by CASP9. Capable of inhibiting CASP9 autoproteolysis at 'Asp-315' and decreasing the rate of auto proteolysis at 'Asp-330'. Acts as a mediator of neuronal survival in pathological conditions. Prevents motor- neuron apoptosis induced by a variety of signals. Possible role in the prevention of spinal muscular atrophy that seems to be caused by inappropriate persistence of motor-neuron apoptosis: mutated or deleted forms of NAIP have been found in individuals with severe spinal muscular atrophy.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in motor neurons, but not in sensory neurons. Found in liver and placenta, and to a lesser extent in spinal cord|

NAIP (neuronal apoptosis inhibitor protein) is a member of the IAPs (inhibitor of apoptosis proteins) that function in cell death pathways to inhibit apoptosis. NAIP was discovered based on its association with a neurodegenerative disorder. Mutations and deletions in the NAIP gene locus is a contributing factor in spinal muscular atrophy. Coexpression of NAIP and hippocalcin protects neurons against calcium-induced cell death. NAIP is strongly expressed in anterior horn and motor cortex neurons of the normal brain. It is also found in human fetal neurons and in adult choroid plexus cells.
