|Description||Viral infection in mammals can lead to the induction of multiple pathways as part of the host defense mechanism. One of the major pathways activated is the JAK-STAT pathway by various interferons (IFNalpha and IFNbeta). These IFNs exert their influence via transcriptional activation of specific target genes involved in anti-viral defense, for example the chemokine ISG15 gene or the major histocompatibility complex class I and II molecules. These genes in turn are regulated by the JAK-STAT signaling pathway and through interferon regulatory factors (IRFs). IRFs are a family of transcription factors which possess a broad range of activities. IRF-3 is one of nine members which all share a common DNA binding domain which binds to IFN stimulated response element (ISRE) found in the majority of IFN-inducible promoters. The IRF-3 gene expresses a 50 kDa protein which is constitutively expressed in all tissues. The protein undergoes post-translational modification as well as dimerization and is translocated from the cytoplasm to the nucleus upon viral infection or exposure to dsRNA. The antibody recognizes human IRF-3. A purified recombinant GST-IRF-3 fusion protein corresponding to human IRF-3 was used as the immunogen.|
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

|Application Notes||Applications include western blot analysis (1.0-4.0 µg/ml). Store the antibody at -20°C. The antibody will only recognize the cytoplasmic form of IRF-3 and can not block IRF-3 DNA binding, although this application has not been tested. Jurkat control lysate [50 µg (1 µg/µl)] is provided as a western blot positive control (store lysate at -20°C). Additional control lysate (ABIN968537) is sold separately.|
|Purification||Purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.|
|Storage||Store undiluted at -20°C.|
|Restrictions||For Research Use only|
|Western blot analysis of IRF-3. Lysates from Jurkat cells were probed with anti-human IRF-3 (clone SL-14.2) at concentrations of 4.0 (lane 1), 2.0 (lane 2), and 1.0 myg/ml (lane 3). IRF-3 is identified at ~50-55 kDa.|
