General Information

Product name Anti-CHIA Antibody
Short Description Rabbit polyclonal to CHIA
Description The protein encoded by this gene degrades chitin, which is found in the cell wall of most fungi as well as in arthropods and some nematodes. The encoded protein can also stimulate interleukin 13 expression, and variations in this gene can lead to asthma susceptibility. Several transcript variants encoding a few different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Function Degrades chitin and chitotriose, May participate in the defense against nematodes, fungi and other pathogens, Plays a role in T-helper cell type 2 (Th2) immune response, Contributes to the response to IL-13 and inflammation in response to IL-13, Stimulates chemokine production by pulmonary epithelial cells, Protects lung epithelial cells against apoptosis and promotes phosphorylation of AKT1, Its function in the inflammatory response and in protecting cells against apoptosis is inhibited by allosamidin, suggesting that the function of this protein depends on carbohydrate binding.
Cellular Localization Secreted, Cytoplasm
Tissue Specificity Detected in lung epithelial cells from asthma patients (at protein level), highly expressed in stomach, detected at lower levels in lung.
