Detection of Human/Mouse FLIP by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of WS‑1 human fetal skin fibroblast cell line and L‑929 mouse fibroblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Rabbit Anti-Human/Mouse FLIP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF821) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band was detected for FLIP at approximately 56 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.

FLIP (Flice-like Inhibitory Protein), also known as I-FLICE, CASPER, and FLAME-1, is an apoptosis inhibitory protein with architecture similar to that of Caspases-8 and -10. Both of the FLIP isoforms, Long (L) and Short (S), contain two death effector domains (DED). FLIP(L) has a C-terminal Caspase-like protease domain which lacks both a catalytic active site and residues that form a substrate-binding pocket. FLIP(S) and FLIP(L) interact with the adaptor molecule FADD, and potently inhibit apoptosis initiated by Fas Ligand/TNF signaling pathways.
R&D Systems personnel manually curate a database that contains references using R&D Systems products.
The data collected includes not only links to publications in PubMed,
but also provides information about sample types, species, and experimental conditions.
