Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 57 kDa.


  • Function
    Required for innate immune defense against viruses. Acts downstream of DDX58 and IFIH1/MDA5, which detect intracellular dsRNA produced during viral replication, to coordinate pathways leading to the activation of NF-kappa-B, IRF3 and IRF7, and to the subsequent induction of antiviral cytokines such as IFN-beta and RANTES (CCL5). May activate the same pathways following detection of extracellular dsRNA by TLR3. May protect cells from apoptosis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Present in T-cells, monocytes, epithelial cells and hepatocytes (at protein level). Ubiquitously expressed, with highest levels in heart, skeletal muscle, liver, placenta and peripheral blood leukocytes.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 CARD domain.
  • Domain
    Both CARD and transmembrane domains are essential for antiviral function. The CARD domain is responsible for interaction with DDX58 and IFIH1.
  • Post-translational
    Ubiquitinated; undergoes 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitination catalyzed by ITCH; ITCH-dependent polyubiquitination is mediated by the interaction with PCBP2 and leads to MAVS proteasomal degradation.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion outer membrane.
