||Recombinant full-length human XIAP was expressed by baculovirus inSf9insect cells using a C-terminal GST tag. MW = 84 kDa.
||XIAP is a member of a family of proteins which inhibit apoptosis and act as mammalian cell-death suppressors. XIAP inhibits at least 2 members of the caspase family of cell-death proteases, caspase-3 and caspase-7. In addition, XIAP inhibits apoptosis induced by menadione, a potent inducer of free radicals, and ICE. Furthermore, XIAP can mediate protection of cells from apoptosis by utilizing both a JNK1 activation pathway that involves ILPIP and a caspase inhibition pathway that is independent of ILPIP. Disruption of the XIAP gene in human colon cancer cells can enhance sensitivity of these cells to exogenously added TRAIL suggesting that XIAP is a nonredundant modulator of TRAIL-mediated apoptosis.

|Storage And Stability:
||Store product at -70℃. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
