Lipopolysaccharide-induced tumor necrosis factor-α factor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-LITAF antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project ( Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

LITAF (Lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF factor) is a widely expressed integral membrane protein of lysosome/late endosome. It activates monocytes and macrophages, which further accelerates the tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) secretion and other inflammatory mediators. It is localized in the intraluminal vesicles of multivesicular bodies (MVBs) and inside exosomes. It is involved in the generation of exosomes through modulating the MVBs formation. Mutation in LITAF causes a rare neurological autosomal-dominant demyelination disorder in CMT1C (Charcot-Marie-Tooth 1C).

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST71014.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is a potent stimulator of monocytes and macrophages, causing secretion of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and other inflammatory mediators. Given the deleterious effects to the host of TNF-alpha, it has been postulated that TNF-alpha gene expression must...

Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease is an inherited neurological disorder. Mutations in the small integral membrane protein of the lysosome/late endosome (SIMPLE) account for the rare autosomal-dominant demyelination in CMT1C patients. Understanding the molecular basis of CMT1C pathogenesis is impeded, in part...

Endosomal trafficking is a key mechanism to modulate signal propagation and cross talk. Ubiquitin adaptors, along with endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) complexes, are also integrated to terminate ligand-receptor activation in late endosomes and multivesicular bodies (MVBs). Within...
