PIBF1 is synthesized during pregnancy in response to progesterone by T lymphocytes. PIBF1 inhibits arachidonic acid release, controls NK activity, and modifies the cytokine balance exerting an anti-abortive effect. It contains a leucine zipper motif, a basic zipper sequence, a PEST sequence, a nuclear localization signal, an ER membrane retention signal and N-glycosylation and phosphorylation sites. PIBF1 is significantly higher in healthy pregnant women than in women at risk for premature pregnancy termination. Full-length PIBF1 is associated with the nucleus and functions as a transcription factor, whereas secretion of shorter forms which may act as cytokines is induced by activation of the cell.
