AIF1, allograft inflammatory factor-1, (also known as Iba1, Ionized calcium binding adaptor molecule 1) is a 17 kDa protein that is a pro-inflammatory molecule that mediates calcium signals. During inflammation, increased expression of AIF1 occurs in microglia, macrophages, T-cells, synoviocytes, and adipocytes. Expression of AIF-1 has been observed in healthy brains and varies throughout the day, gaining the highest expression in the prefrontal and parietal cortices when sleeping. Increased expression of AIF1 has been observed in several diseases including breast cancer, atherosclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
