|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||AAC52047, 1737213|
|Calculated MW||159582 Da|
|Application Notes||NAIP antibody can be used for the detection of NAIP by Western blot at 0.5 to 2 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 10 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||NAIP Antibody: BIRC1, NLRB1, psiNAIP, BIRC1, Baculoviral IAP repeat-containing protein 1, Neuronal apoptosis inhibitory protein, NLR family, apoptosis inhibitory protein|
|Target/Specificity||NAIP; Minor, lower molecular weight bands may represent alternately spliced forms.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||NAIP 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||NAIP Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Anti-apoptotic protein which acts by inhibiting the activities of CASP3, CASP7 and CASP9. Can inhibit the autocleavage of pro-CASP9 and cleavage of pro-CASP3 by CASP9. Capable of inhibiting CASP9 autoproteolysis at 'Asp-315' and decreasing the rate of auto proteolysis at 'Asp-330'. Acts as a mediator of neuronal survival in pathological conditions. Prevents motor- neuron apoptosis induced by a variety of signals. Possible role in the prevention of spinal muscular atrophy that seems to be caused by inappropriate persistence of motor-neuron apoptosis: mutated or deleted forms of NAIP have been found in individuals with severe spinal muscular atrophy.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in motor neurons, but not in sensory neurons. Found in liver and placenta, and to a lesser extent in spinal cord|

NAIP Antibody: Neuronal apoptosis inhibitor protein (NAIP) was the first human inhibitor of apoptosis protein (IAP) identified and was discovered by its association with the neurodegenerative disorder spinal muscular atrophy. Members of the IAP family contain one to three copies of an approximately 70 amino acid motif termed baculovirus IAP repeat (BIR); these BIRs promote protein-protein interactions with various caspases such as caspase-3, -7, and -9 as well as members of the TRAF family of signal molecules. Unlike other IAPs however, NAIP requires ATP to bind caspase-9 and is not inhibited by the IAP-inhibiting molecule Smac/DIABLO, suggesting that NAIP is unique among the IAPs in its regulation of its activity. Finally, although only one human NAIP protein has been identified, other shorter NAIP mRNA transcripts have been reported.
