Description: This 8B2 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse Aiolos, a 58-kDa member of the Ikaros family of zinc finger transcription factors. Expression of Aiolos is restricted to the lymphoid lineage, with B cells exhibiting the highest levels of expression, followed by NK and T cells. Studies demonstrate that Aiolos forms homodimers or heterodimerizes with Ikaros proteins. Moreover, Aiolos exhibits tyrosine phosphorylation and nuclear localization in response to IL-2 stimulation in T cells. Aiolos plays a role in IL-2-mediated anti-apoptosis by controlling Bcl-2 expression. Finally, Aiolos is involved in B cell development, with upregulation of this transcription factor observed at the pre-BI to pre-BII transition in response to pre-B cell receptor signaling. Applications Reported: This 8B2 antibody has been reported for use in immunoblotting/western blotting. Applications Tested: This 8B2 antibody has been tested by immunoblotting of reduced cell lysate prepared from mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 5 µg/mL. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.This gene encodes a member of the Ikaros family of zinc-finger proteins. Three members of this protein family (Ikaros, Aiolos and Helios) are hematopoietic-specific transcription factors involved in the regulation of lymphocyte development. This gene product is a transcription factor that is important in the regulation of B lymphocyte proliferation and differentiation. Both Ikaros and Aiolos can participate in chromatin remodeling. Regulation of gene expression in B lymphocytes by Aiolos is complex as it appears to require the sequential formation of Ikaros homodimers, Ikaros/Aiolos heterodimers, and Aiolos homodimers. At least six alternative transcripts encoding different isoforms have been described.
