|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_002451, 167555104|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||51772 Da|
|Application Notes||IRF4 antibody can be used for detection of IRF4 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 10 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||IRF4; IRF4 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other IRF protein family members. IRF4 often migrates at a higher than predicted molecular weight in SDS-PAGE.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||IRF4 antibody can be stored at 4 ℃, stable for 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||IRF4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcriptional activator. Binds to the interferon- stimulated response element (ISRE) of the MHC class I promoter. Binds the immunoglobulin lambda light chain enhancer, together with PU.1. Probably plays a role in ISRE-targeted signal transduction mechanisms specific to lymphoid cells. Involved in CD8(+) dendritic cell differentiation by forming a complex with the BATF-JUNB heterodimer in immune cells, leading to recognition of AICE sequence (5'-TGAnTCA/GAAA-3'), an immune-specific regulatory element, followed by cooperative binding of BATF and IRF4 and activation of genes (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Lymphoid cells.|

IRF4 Antibody: Interferons (IFNs) are involved in a multitude of immune interactions during viral infections and play a major role in both the induction and regulation of innate and adaptive antiviral mechanisms. During infection, host-virus interactions signal downstream molecules such as transcription factors such as IFN regulatory factor-3 (IRF3) which can act to stimulate transcription of IFN-alpha/beta genes. Another member, IRF7 has been shown to play a role in the transcriptional activation of virus-inducible cellular genes, including interferon beta chain genes. IRF4 expression is tightly regulated in resting primary T cells and plays an essential role in the homeostasis and function of mature lymphocytes. IRF4 is induced by Toll-like receptor (TLR) activation and acts as a negative regulator of TLR signaling.
