Protein Information
Name PIBF1
Synonyms C13orf24, PIBF
Function Plays a role in ciliogenesis.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome Cytoplasm. Secreted. Note=In progesterone-treated astrocytoma cells a 57 kDa protein and isoform 1 (90 kDa) have been described, both being located in the intracellular medium and secreted. Respective predominant forms are isoform 1 in the intracellular and the 57 kDa protein in the extracellular medium (PubMed:25218441). Isoform 4: Secreted Note=Secreted by progesterone-treated lymphocytes (PubMed:14634107).
Tissue Location Expressed at highest levels in testis. Moderate expression is detected in spleen, thymus, prostate, ovary, small intestine, and colon (PubMed:11935316). Expressed in the first trimester pregnancy decidua (PubMed:12516630). Localized to extravillous cytotrophoblast (at protein level). Also found in syncytiotrophoblast and part of the villous cytotrophoblast Isoform 1 is expressed in first trimester and term villous trophoblast; trophoblast cells can additionally express other isoforms (PubMed:18817979). Overexpresed in solid tumors from stomach and uterus and in cells from ovary, cervical, breast, lymphoma and leukemia cancer (PubMed:25218441)

PIBF1 Antibody: PIBF1 is synthesized during pregnancy in response to progesterone by T lymphocytes. PIBF1 inhibits arachidonic acid release, controls NK activity, and modifies the cytokine balance exerting an anti-abortive effect. It contains a leucine zipper motif, a basic zipper sequence, a PEST sequence, a nuclear localization signal, an ER membrane retention signal and N-glycosylation and phosphorylation sites. PIBF1 is significantly higher in healthy pregnant women than in women at risk for premature pregnancy termination. Full-length PIBF1 is associated with the nucleus and functions as a transcription factor, whereas secretion of shorter forms which may act as cytokines is induced by activation of the cell.
