  • Function
    Involved in innate immunity against invading pathogens. Adapter used by TLR3 and TLR4 (through TICAM2) to mediate NF-kappa-B and interferon-regulatory factor (IRF) activation, and to induce apoptosis. Ligand binding to these receptors results in TRIF recruitment through its TIR domain. Distinct protein-interaction motifs allow recruitment of the effector proteins TBK1, TRAF6 and RIPK1, which in turn, lead to the activation of transcription factors IRF3 and IRF7, NF-kappa-B and FADD respectively.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitously expressed but with higher levels in liver.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 TIR domain.
  • Domain
    The N-terminal region is essential for activation of the IFNB promoter activity.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by TBK1.

  • Anti-TRIF antibody (ab13810) at 1/1000 dilution + Mouse spleen lysate
  • ab13810 (2µg/ml) staining TRIF in human colon using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is strong staining of mucosal cell cytoplasm.
    Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer citrate pH6.1 in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.

Thank you for letting me know that the antibody reached you safely. The colour of antibodies does vary slightly depending on how they were purified and the buffer which they are stored in. ab13810 is a preparation of whole antiserum from rabbit and it may be that the other proteins and compounds present in the serum are contributing to the slightly yellow colour. It should not however change the activity of the antibody. I would suggesttrying theantibody as usual and if you have any problems please do let us know. Please make sure that it is stored as indicated on the datasheet: Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles. If you could please fill in the form I have attached that will allow me to more fully understand the procedure you have been carrying out and highlight any areas where I may be able to help you optimise the performance of the antibody. This will also allow me to investigate this complaint internally and initiate any additional testing that may be required. If you could include some images of your results that would be very helpful. Many thanks for your continued cooperation.

Thank you for the swift reply. I have arranged for a free of charge replacement of a different lot to be sent to you directly (Order number:xxxxx number:xxxxxx). This should be with you tomorrow. I would be very grateful if you could find the time to answer the additional questions which I sent so that we can more fully understand the problems you have been experiencing and initiate any investigation into the matter which may be necessary. Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience which this problem has caused and hope the replacement vial will bring better results. I look forward to receiving your reply.

If you could also answer the following questions when you have time it would be much appreciated. This information allows us to monitor the quality of our products and instigate any further testing where it might be required.

Thank you for your enquiry. I have been in contact with the originator of this antibody, and they used mouse spleen from an adult Balb/c, approximately 6 months old. With that knowledge, I would recommend the 14 day old lysate over the 7 day old lysate. I hope this information helps, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
