|Tissue Location||Isoform 2 is expressed ubiquitously, although highly expressed in lung and spleen. Isoform 1 is highly expressed in lung, followed by leukocytes especially monocytes, lymph node, colon, brain, prostate, placenta, spleen, bone marrow and fetal liver. Isoform 4 is only detected in brain|

Ipaf Antibody: Apoptosis is related to many diseases and induced by a family of cell death receptors and their ligands. Cell death signals are transduced by death domain containing adaptor molecules and proteases including several members of the caspase family. Another family of proteins that functions as a critical regulator of apoptosis and NFκ signaling pathways is the CED-4/Apaf-1 (apoptosis protein activating factor-1) protein family. Ipaf (ICE protease activating factor) is a CED-4/Apaf-1 family member that activates caspase-1/ICE and can induce apoptosis in human cells in a caspase-1 dependent manner. Ipaf and caspase-1 are thought to interact with each other through the association of the Ipaf amino-terminal CARD (caspase recruitment domain) and amino-terminal CARD of caspase-1.
