|Other Accession||NM_012420, NP_036552|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Pig, Horse, Bovine, Dog|
|Predicted||Human, Pig, Horse, Bovine, Dog|
|Other Names||Interferon-induced protein with tetratricopeptide repeats 5, IFIT-5, Interferon-induced 58 kDa protein, Retinoic acid- and interferon-inducible 58 kDa protein, P58, IFIT5, ISG58, RI58|
|Format||Liquid. Purified antibody supplied in 1x PBS buffer with 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 2% sucrose.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Add 50 ul of distilled water. Final anti-IFIT5 antibody concentration is 1 mg/ml in PBS buffer with 2% sucrose. For longer periods of storage, store at 20°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||IFIT5 antibody - middle region is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Interferon-induced RNA-binding protein that specifically binds single-stranded RNA bearing a 5'-triphosphate group (PPP- RNA), thereby acting as a sensor of viral single-stranded RNAs. Single-stranded PPP-RNAs, which lack 2'-O-methylation of the 5' cap and bear a 5'-triphosphate group instead, are specific from viruses, providing a molecular signature to distinguish between self and non-self mRNAs by the host during viral infection. Directly binds PPP-RNA in a non-sequence-specific manner. Also recognizes and binds tRNAs.|
|Cellular Location||Cell projection, ruffle membrane. Note=Colocalized with DDX58/RIG-I at cell surface ruffles. Localizes to actin-rich protrusions from the apical cell surface|
