ELISA 1/10000.


  • Function
    Acts as a negative mediator of apoptosis and may play a role in tumor progression. Suppresses the TNF-mediated apoptosis by inhibiting caspase-8 activity but not the processing of procaspase-8, subsequently resulting in inhibition of BID cleavage and caspase-3 activation.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed at high levels in the spleen, lymph node, thymus, thyroid, bone marrow and placenta. Expressed at high levels both in various tumor tissues, unstimulated and cytokine-activated cultured cells. Expressed at low levels in the spinal cord, ovary, lung, adrenal glands, heart, brain, testis and skeletal muscle.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the TNFAIP8 family.
  • Developmental stage
    Expressed at high levels in the fetal liver, lung and kidney.

  • Immunofluorescence analysis of A549 cells, using TNFAIP8 antibody (ab64988) at 1/500 dilution, in the presence (right panel) and absence (left panel) of immunising peptide.
  • Immunohistochemistry analysis of paraffin-embedded human lung carcinoma tissue using TNFAIP8 antibody (ab64988) at 1/50 dilution, in the presence (right panel) and absence (left panel) of immunising peptide. Antigen retrieval was performed by boiling in a pressure cooker for 2-3 min. A Polymer system was used for signal enhancing. Stained using DAB.
