Allograft inflammatory factor 1 (AIF1), also known as IBA1, daintain and Protein G1, is an actin-binding protein. Actinbinding protein that enhances membrane ruffling and RAC activation enhances the actin-bundling activity of LCP1, binds calcium and plays a role in RAC signaling and in phagocytosis.It may play a role in macrophage activation and function. AIF1 also promotes the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and of T-lymphocytes. In an unstimulated state, AIF1 colocalizes with actin, and upon stimulation, translocates to lamellipodia. It is also a marker of human microglia and is expressed by macrophages in injured skeletal muscle. The gene encoding AIF1 resides in the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) cluster of genes, located in the region represented by the human major histocompatibility complex (MHC).
