Total lysates (15 µg protein) from 293E (Lane 1) and Daudi (Lane 2) cells were resolved by electrophoresis (4-12% Bis-Tris gel), transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with 0.5 µg/mL Purified anti-AIM2 Antibody, clone 3B10 (upper). Proteins were visualized by chemiluminescence detection using a 1:3000 diluted goat anti-mouse-IgG secondary antibody conjugated to HRP for the anti-AIM2 Antibody or 1:5000 diluted Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-β-Actin Antibody, clone 2F1-1(lower).

Description

AIM2 is one of the human IFN-inducible proteins, encoding a 39 kD protein. It contains a 200 amino acid repeat, which is a signature of the HIN-200 family (hematopoietic IFN-inducible nuclear proteins). Expression of AIM2 can inhibit cell growth and tumor formation, possibly through inducing apoptosis and suppressing nuclear factor-κ B transcriptional activity and desensitizing tumor necrosis factor-alpha-mediated nuclear factor-κ B activation. Furthermore, the gene for AIM2 shows a high frequency of mutations that are associated with microsatellite unstable colorectal cancers. AIM2 plays a critical role in the activation of caspase-1, the protease responsible for the processing of pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1β and IL-18. AIM2 is also essential for mediating inflammatory reactions triggered by cytoplasmic DNA. AIM2 is an important sensor for different pathogens through the binding of cytoplasmic double-stranded DNA through HIN-200 domain and formation of inflammatsomes including ASC/AIM2. This complex then triggers caspase-1 activation. Recent studies also show that AIM2/ASC complex acts as a novel caspase-8 activation platform.
