CHIA Antibody (N-term)

Peptide Affinity Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - CHIA Antibody (N-term) AP9394a
    Western blot analysis of CHIA Antibody (N-term) (Cat. #AP9394a) in mouse liver tissue lysates (35ug/lane). CHIA (arrow) was detected using the purified Pab.
  • FC - CHIA Antibody (N-term) AP9394a
    CHIA Antibody (N-term) (Cat.#AP9394a) FC analysis of ZR-75-1 cells (bottom histogram) compared to a negative control cell (top histogram). FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.

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.
StorageMaintain 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.
PrecautionsCHIA Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Function Degrades chitin and chitotriose. May participate in the defense against nematodes, fungi and other pathogens. Plays a role in T-helper cell type 2 (Th2) immune response. Contributes to the response to IL-13 and inflammation in response to IL-13. Stimulates chemokine production by pulmonary epithelial cells. Protects lung epithelial cells against apoptosis and promotes phosphorylation of AKT1. Its function in the inflammatory response and in protecting cells against apoptosis is inhibited by allosamidin, suggesting that the function of this protein depends on carbohydrate binding.
Cellular Location Isoform 1: Secreted. Note=Secretion depends on EGFR activity Isoform 3: Cytoplasm.
Tissue Location Detected in lung epithelial cells from asthma patients (at protein level). Highly expressed in stomach. Detected at lower levels in lung.

CHIA degrades chitin and chitotriose. May participate in the defense against nematodes and other pathogens. There are 3 named isoforms produced by alternative splicing. CHIA is induced via a T helper-2 (Th2)-specific, interleukin-13-mediated pathway in epithelial cells and macrophages. CHIA may be an important mediator of IL13-induced responses in Th2-dominated disorders such as asthma. CHIA hydrolysis N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminide 1,4-beta-linkages in chitin and chitodextrins.
