AIM2 Antibody (N-term)

Peptide Affinity Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - AIM2 Antibody (N-term) AP9876a
    Western blot analysis of AIM2 Antibody (N-term) (Cat. #AP9876a) in MCF-7, HL-60, K562, Hela cell line lysates (35ug/lane). AIM2 (arrow) was detected using the purified Pab.
  • FC - AIM2 Antibody (N-term) AP9876a
    AIM2 Antibody (N-term) (Cat. #AP9876a) flow cytometric analysis of MCF-7 cells (bottom histogram) compared to a negative control cell (top histogram).FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.
  • IF - AIM2 Antibody (N-term) AP9876a
    Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of AIM2 Antibody (N-term)(Cat#AP9876a) with MCF-7 cell followed by Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit lgG (green).Actin filaments have been labeled with Alexa Fluor 555 phalloidin (red).DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclear (blue).

Protein Information
Name AIM2
Function Involved in innate immune response by recognizing cytosolic double-stranded DNA and inducing caspase-1-activating inflammasome formation in macrophages. Upon binding to DNA is thought to undergo oligomerization and to associate with PYCARD initiating the recruitment of caspase-1 precusrsor and processing of interleukin-1 beta and interleukin-18. Detects cytosolic dsDNA of viral and bacterial origin in a non-sequence-specific manner. Can also trigger PYCARD-dependent, caspase-1-independent cell death that involves caspase-8 (By similarity). Tumor suppressor which may act by repressing NF-kappa-B transcriptional activity.
Cellular Location Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Activated inflammasomes can aggregate in the cytosol as speck-like particles
Tissue Location Expressed in spleen, small intestine, peripheral blood leukocytes, and testis
