|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||AF165161, 5533376|
|Calculated MW||220 kDa|
|Application Notes||FLASH antibody can be used for detection of FLASH by Western blot at 0.5 µg/mL. An approximate 220 kDa band can be detected. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 10 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 10 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||FLASH Antibody: CED-4, FLASH, RIP25, KIAA1315, CASP8-associated protein 2, FLICE-associated huge protein, caspase 8 associated protein 2|
|Reconstitution & Storage||FLASH antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||FLASH Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Participates in TNF-alpha-induced blockade of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) transactivation at the nuclear receptor coactivator level, upstream and independently of NF- kappa-B. Suppresses both NCOA2- and NCOA3-induced enhancement of GR transactivation. Involved in TNF-alpha-induced activation of NF-kappa-B via a TRAF2-dependent pathway. Acts as a downstream mediator for CASP8-induced activation of NF-kappa-B. Required for the activation of CASP8 in FAS-mediated apoptosis. Required for histone gene transcription and progression through S phase.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Nucleus, PML body. Mitochondrion. Note=Exported from the nucleus to the mitochondria upon FAS activation|

FLASH Antibody: A novel mammalian CED-4 homologous was recently identified and cloned in mouse and human and designated FLASH (for FLICE-associated huge protein). FLASH is involved in Fas induced apoptosis. It is recruited to Fas after the receptor cross-linking. Overexpression of wild type of FLASH facilitates and its dominant negative form inhibits Fas induced apoptosis. FLASH interacts with the DEDs of caspase-8 and FADD through the DED-like domain of FLASH and mediates activation of caspase-8. There are parallels between FLASH and Apaf-1/CED-4 although there are arguments against their structural similarity. FLASH is widely expressed.
