|Description||Mcl-1 (for myeloid cell leukemia-1) is a member of the Bcl-2 family that was identified by screening of of cDNA libraries derived from differentiating human myeloid leukemia cells. Bcl-2 family members are involved in apoptosis and share two highly conserved functional regions, Bcl-2 homology 1 and 2 (BH1 and BH2). Several of the family members including Bcl-2 act as inhibitors of apoptosis, whereas others such as Bax promote cell death. It is thought that protein-protein interactions between Bcl-2 family members play an important role in their function. For example, Bax can homodimerize as well as heterodimerize with Bcl-2. When Bax is present in excess, it can counteract the ability of Bcl-2 to inhibit cell death. Although its function remains to be fully elucidated, Mcl-1 may, like Bcl-2, be a blocker of cell death. For example, transfection of Mcl-1 into Chinese hamster ovary cells partially blocked Myc-induced apoptosis, and Mcl-1 blocked Bax mediated cell death in a yeast two-hybrid system. The two-hybrid system results suggest that Mcl-1/Bax interations may have functional homology to Bcl-2/Bax interations in blocking Bax-mediated cell death. This polyclonal antibody is not recommended for the identification of mouse Mcl-1 and has been reported not to cross-react with human Bcl-2.|
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
3. This product contains thimerosal, an organic mercury compound. Mercury and mercury compounds are chemicals known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Foreseeable use of this product does not pose a known reproductive toxicity threat.
