Detection of Human/Mouse IRF4 Catalytic Subunit by Western Blot. Western blot shows nuclear extracts of Raji human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line, Daudi human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line, HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, and NIH‑3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse IRF4 Catalytic Subunit Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5525) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for IRF4 Catalytic Subunit at approximately 50 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 5.
IRF4 in Human Tonsil. IRF4 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human tonsil using Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse IRF4 Catalytic Subunit Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5525) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei.

Interferon Regulatory Factor 4 (IRF4), also known as MUM1 and LSIRF, is a 51 kDa lymphocyte-restricted transcription factor. It is required for immunoglobulin class switching and terminal differentiation of B cells. IRF4 is overexpressed in multiple myeloma and cooperates with Myc in an autoregulatory loop. In T cells, IRF4 is required for the production of IL-4. IRF4 contains an N-terminal DNA binding domain that is homologous to that in other IRF proteins. Within the C-terminal domain (aa 130‑451), human IRF4 shares 90% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat IRF4. Alternate splicing may generate isoforms with N-terminal, C-terminal, or internal deletions.
