|Other Names||Toll/interleukin-1 receptor domain-containing adapter protein, TIR domain-containing adapter protein, Adaptor protein Wyatt, MyD88 adapter-like protein, MyD88-2, TIRAP, MAL|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the N-terminus of human TIRAP was used as an immunogen. This antibody detects 3 different isoforms of TIRAP.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||TIRAP Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Adapter involved in TLR2 and TLR4 signaling pathways in the innate immune response. Acts via IRAK2 and TRAF-6, leading to the activation of NF-kappa-B, MAPK1, MAPK3 and JNK, and resulting in cytokine secretion and the inflammatory response. Positively regulates the production of TNF-alpha and interleukin-6.|

Mammalian Toll-like receptors (TLRs) recognize conserved products of microbial metabolism and activate NF-kappa B and other signaling pathways through the adapter protein MyD88. All TLRs have a Toll/IL-1 receptor (TIR) domain, which is responsible for signal transduction. MyD88 is one such protein that contains a TIR domain. It acts as an adapter, being involved in TLR-2, TLR-4 and TLR-9 signaling. Toll-interleukin 1 receptor (TIR) domain-containing adapter protein (TIRAP) controls activation of MyD88-independent signaling pathways downstream of TLR4. Double-stranded RNA-binding protein kinase PKR is a component of both the TIRAP- and MyD88-dependent signaling pathways (1). It has been demonstrated that TRIF associates with TRAF6 and TBK1 independently, and activates two distinct transcription factors, NF- B and IFN regulatory factor-3, respectively (2). TIRAP is differentially involved in signaling by members of the TLR family and may account for specificity in the downstream signaling of individual TLRs (3).
