Western blot shows lysates of HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line transfected with human cIAP‑1 or human cIAP‑2. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse cIAP Pan-specific Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3400) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). For additional reference, lysates of Raji human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line, Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line, and SW3T3 mouse contact inhibited fibroblast cell line were included. Specific bands for cIAP-1 and cIAP-2 were detected at approximately 80 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.
Simple Western lane view shows lysates of HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line transfected with either cIAP-1 or cIAP-2 and Raji human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for cIAP-1 and cIAP-2 at approximately 73 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse cIAP Pan-specific Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3400). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

Background: cIAP (pan)
Cellular inhibitor of apoptosis protein1 (cIAP-1, also known as BIRC2, MIHB, and HIAP2) and 2 (cIAP-2, also known as BIRC3, MIHC, and HIAP1), are members of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) family of proteins that inhibit the proteolytic activity of mature caspases. Structurally, cIAP-1 and cIAP-2 are each comprised of 3 BIR (baculovirus inhibitor of apoptosis) domains, a RING finger domain, and a caspase recruitment domain (CARD). Human cIAP-1 and cIAP-2 share 70% sequence identity. Functionally, cIAPs inhibits caspases through the direct interaction of its BIR domain with the active caspase. The ring finger domain of cIAP-1 and -2 also functions as an E3 ubiquitin ligase to ubiqutinylate specific target proteins. Caspase activity may be restored by mitochondrial proteins, such as SMAC/Diablo or HtrA2/Omi, through interactions with the Reaper-like motif and the BIR domain. cIAPs are reported to be cleaved by HtrA2/Omi.
