FLIP-L Antibody Staining Protocol for Immunohistochemistry


Description: Irmler et al. (1997) isolated human cDNAs encoding 2 isoforms of FLIP. FLIP(L), the longer isoform, contains 2 DEDs and a caspase-like domain, and FLIP(S), the shorter isoform, contains only the 2 DEDs followed by a C-terminal extension of approximately 50 amino acids. High levels of FLIP (L) protein were detected in melanoma cell lines and malignant melanoma tumors. FLIP may be implicated in tissue homeostasis as an important regulator of apoptosis.
