Detection of IRF5 in A20 Mouse Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. A20 mouse B cell lymphoma cell line was stained with Rat Anti-Mouse IRF5 Alexa Fluor® 488‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # IC8447G, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # IC013G, open histogram). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (Catalog # FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

IRF5 is a member of the IRF family of transcription factors, a family characterized by a helix-turn-helix DNA binding domain enriched in tryptophan repeats. IRF family members show diverse cellular regulation of interferon-stimulated gene transcription, viral-mediated gene activation, apoptosis, differentiation, and cellular growth. IRF5, along with IRF7, are the key mediators of TLR signaling. IRF5 forms heterodimers with IRF3 both of which are necessary for interferon gene transcription. IRF5 knock out mice indicate that IRF5 is critical for induction of apoptosis.
