|Antigen Region||307-335 aa|
|Other Names||Interferon-induced protein with tetratricopeptide repeats 2, IFIT-2, ISG-54 K, Interferon-induced 54 kDa protein, IFI-54K, P54, IFIT2, CIG-42, G10P2, IFI54, ISG54|
|Target/Specificity||This IFIT2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 307-335 amino acids from the Central region of human IFIT2.|
|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||IFIT2 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||CIG-42, G10P2, IFI54, ISG54|
|Function||IFN-induced antiviral protein which inhibits expression of viral messenger RNAs lacking 2'-O-methylation of the 5' cap. The ribose 2'-O-methylation would provide a molecular signature to distinguish between self and non-self mRNAs by the host during viral infection. Viruses evolved several ways to evade this restriction system such as encoding their own 2'-O-methylase for their mRNAs or by stealing host cap containing the 2'-O- methylation (cap snatching mechanism). Binds AU-rich viral RNAs, with or without 5' triphosphorylation, RNA-binding is required for antiviral activity. Can promote apoptosis.|
