Immunogen peptide sequence
Clone 6A7
Isotype IgG1
Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. 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.
Purification Purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name Bax
Background The Bcl-2 family members are involved in mediating programmed cell death or 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 may form homodimers or heterodimers with either Bcl-2 and Bcl-XL (long). Bax homodimers is thought to promote cell death, whereas Bax heterodimerization with either Bcl-2 and Bcl-XL appears to block cell death. When Bax is present in excess, it can counteract the ability of Bcl-2 to inhibit cell death. Bax expression has been identified in a variety of tissues, including lung, stomach, kidney, thymus, lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen, heart, exocrine pancreas, and brain. Liver, kidney, and the exocrine pancreas have been found to contain little or no Bcl-2. The Bax gene potentially encodes three different proteins Bax-alpha (21 kDa), Bax-beta (24 kDa) and Bax-gamma (5 kDa). Bax-alpha is the most common transcript. The 6A7 antibody recognizes human, mouse and rat Bax. The 6A7 antibody reacts with an epitope between amino acids 12-24 of Bax, and studies suggest that this epitope may be in the vicinity of the dimerization domain of Bax. It has been proposed that the 6A7 antibody may directly compete with either Bcl-2 or Bcl-XL for binding to Bax. In western blots, the 6A7 antibody typically detects Bax as a single band of 21-22 kDa, thought to be Bax-alpha.
Molecular Weight 21-22 kDa
Research Area Cancer, Apoptosis/Necrosis
Application Notes Applications include western blot analysis (1-2 µg/ml) and immunoprecipitation. Daudi B lymphoma cells (ATCC CCL-213) and rat thymocytes are suggested as positive controls for western blot analysis. Due to low level of Bax expression in Hela cells, we do not recommend Hela as a positive control.
