Apoptosis regulator BAX|Bcl-2-like protein 4|Bcl2-L-4|BAX|BCL2L4
The Bcl-2 gene was isolated at the chromosomal breakpoint of t-bearing follicular B cell lymphomas. Bcl-2 blocks cell death following a variety of stimuli and confers a death-sparing effect to certain hematopoietic cell lines following growth factor withdrawal. Bcl-2 is localized to outer mitochondrial membranes and endoplasmic reticulum as well as nuclear membranes. A related protein, designated Bax p21 (for Bcl-associated X protein), has extensive amino acid homology with Bcl-2 and both homodimerizes and forms heterodimers with Bcl-2. Overexpression of Bax accelerates apoptotic death induced by cytokine deprivation in an IL-3 dependent cell line, and Bax also counters the death repressor activity of Bcl-2.
Homo Sapiens (Human)
Synthetic peptide, corresponding to amino acids 150-200 of Human Bax.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Product: 1 mg/ml in Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 0.05% sodium azide, approx. pH 7.2.Specificity: Bax (S163) polyclonal antibody detects endogenous levels of Bax protein.
The antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen and the purity is > 95% (by SDS-PAGE).
