|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||EAW75510, 119595916|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 39, 45 kDa |
Observed: 42 kDa
|Application Notes||ZBP1 antibody can be used for the detection of ZBP1 by Western blot at 0.5 - 2 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||ZBP1; Multiple isoforms of ZBP1 are known to exist.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||ZBP1 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||ZBP1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Participates in the detection by the host's innate immune system of DNA from viral, bacterial or even host origin. Plays a role in host defense against tumors and pathogens. Acts as a cytoplasmic DNA sensor which, when activated, induces the recruitment of TBK1 and IRF3 to its C-terminal region and activates the downstream interferon regulatory factor (IRF) and NF-kappa B transcription factors, leading to type-I interferon production. ZBP1-induced NF-kappaB activation probably involves the recruitment of the RHIM containing kinases RIPK1 and RIPK3 (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in lymphatic tissues including lymph node, leukocytes, tonsil, bone marrow and spleen Expressed to a lesser extent in thymus, lung and liver|

ZBP1 Antibody: Z-DNA binding protein 1 (ZBP1) belongs to a family of proteins that contain the Zalpha domain which binds specifically to left-handed Z-DNA and Z-RNA. ZBP1 was initially identified as a novel gene that was up-regulated in activated macrophages in mice bearing ascites tumors, suggesting that is may play a role in processes such as host response in neoplasia. More recent reports indicate that the cytosolic ZBP1 has can act like the toll-like receptor TLR9 by detecting cytosolic double-stranded (ds) DNA and trigger induction of type I interferon and other innate immune responses. It is thought that the binding of ZBP1 to dsDNA enhances its association with innate immune response proteins such as the IRF3 transcription factor and the serine/threonine kinase TBK1 (also known as NAK).
