Anti-MyD88 (CT) Antibody
Catalog No.: 2127
Size: 100 ug IgG in PBS, pH 7.4, purified by immunoaffinity chroma- tography.
Cellular responses induced by the pro- inflammatory cytokine IL-1 require IL-1 receptor complex (IL-1R1 and IL- 1RacP). Recently, MyD88 was identified as an adapter molecule in the IL-1 signaling pathway. MyD88 associates with and recruits IRAK to the IL-1 receptor. Dominant negative mutants of MyD88 attenuate IL-1R- mediated NF-κB activation. MyD88 also functions as a regulator molecule for IL- 18 receptor and human Toll receptor, members of the Toll/IL-1R family of receptors. Targeted disruption of the MyD88 gene results in loss of cellular responses to IL-1 and IL-18, and MyD88-deficient mice lack responses to LPS which require Toll-like receptors 2 and 4 (TLR2 and TLR4) as the signaling receptors. MyD88 is a general adapter protein for the Toll/IL-1R family of receptors and plays an important role in the inflammatory responses induced by cytokines IL-1, IL-18, and LPS. MyD88 is expressed in a variety of tissues.
