Product name Anti-BPIFA1 antibody
Short Description Rabbit polyclonal against BPIFA1
Description This gene is the human homolog of murine plunc, and like the mouse gene, is specifically expressed in the upper airways and nasopharyngeal regions. The encoded antimicrobial protein displays antibacterial activity against Gram-negative bacteria. It is thought to be involved in inflammatory responses to irritants in the upper airways and may also serve as a potential molecular marker for detection of micrometastasis in non-small-cell lung cancer. Multiple transcript variants resulting from alternative splicing in the 3' UTR have been detected, but the full-length nature of only three are known.

Function Lipid-binding protein which shows high specificity for the surfactant phospholipid dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC). Plays a role in the innate immune responses of the upper airways. Reduces the surface tension in secretions from airway epithelia and inhibits the formation of biofilm by pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria, such as P. aeruginosa and K. pneumoniae. Negatively regulates proteolytic cleavage of SCNN1G, an event that is required for activation of the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC), and thereby contributes to airway surface liquid homeostasis and proper clearance of mucus. Plays a role in the airway inflammatory response after exposure to irritants. May attract macrophages and neutrophils.
Post-translational Modifications May be N-glycosylated.

Tissue Specificity Highly expressed in lung, upper airways and nasopharyngeal regions, including trachea and nasal epithelium (at protein level). Specifically expressed in the secretory ducts and submucosal glands of tracheobronchial tissues (at protein level). Also expressed in the eye where it is detected in lacrimal gland, eyelid, conjunctiva and cornea (at protein level). Specifically localizes to epithelial cell layers in cornea, eyelid (basal epithelium) and conjunctiva (at protein level). Detected within acinar cells
