|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||56528 Da|
|Antigen Region||477-505 aa|
|Other Names||Mitochondrial antiviral-signaling protein, MAVS, CARD adapter inducing interferon beta, Cardif, Interferon beta promoter stimulator protein 1, IPS-1, Putative NF-kappa-B-activating protein 031N, Virus-induced-signaling adapter, VISA, MAVS, IPS1, KIAA1271, VISA|
|Target/Specificity||This MAVS antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 477-505 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human MAVS.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MAVS Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for innate immune defense against viruses. Acts downstream of DHX33, DDX58/RIG-I and IFIH1/MDA5, which detect intracellular dsRNA produced during viral replication, to coordinate pathways leading to the activation of NF-kappa-B, IRF3 and IRF7, and to the subsequent induction of antiviral cytokines such as IFN-beta and RANTES (CCL5). Peroxisomal and mitochondrial MAVS act sequentially to create an antiviral cellular state. Upon viral infection, peroxisomal MAVS induces the rapid interferon- independent expression of defense factors that provide short-term protection, whereas mitochondrial MAVS activates an interferon- dependent signaling pathway with delayed kinetics, which amplifies and stabilizes the antiviral response. May activate the same pathways following detection of extracellular dsRNA by TLR3. May protect cells from apoptosis.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane. Mitochondrion Peroxisome|
|Tissue Location||Present in T-cells, monocytes, epithelial cells and hepatocytes (at protein level). Ubiquitously expressed, with highest levels in heart, skeletal muscle, liver, placenta and peripheral blood leukocytes.|

Double-stranded RNA viruses are recognized in a cell type-dependent manner by the transmembrane receptor TLR3 (MIM 603029) or by the cytoplasmic RNA helicases MDA5 (MIM 606951) and RIGI (ROBO3; MIM 608630). These interactions initiate signaling pathways that differ in their initial steps but converge in the activation of the protein kinases IKKA (CHUK; MIM 600664) and IKKB (IKBKB; MIM 603258), which activate NFKB (see MIM 164011), or TBK1 (MIM 604834) and IKKE (IKBKE; MIM 605048), which activate IRF3 (MIM 603734). Activated IRF3 and NFKB induce transcription of IFNB (IFNB1; MIM 147640). For the TLR3 pathway, the intermediary molecule before the pathways converge is the cytoplasmic protein TRIF (TICAM1; MIM 607601). For RIGI, the intermediary protein is mitochondria-bound IPS1 (Sen and Sarkar, 2005 [PubMed 16239922]).
