Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
4. 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 (BAX Antibody Abstract)
Background Proper development and maintenance of homeostasis within tissues is achieved through cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. Members of the Bcl-2 protein family function to either inhibit (Bcl-2 and Bcl-XL) or promote (Bax and Bak) apoptosis. Similar to other family members, Bax contains the conserved Bcl-2 homology 1 (BH1) and 2 (BH2) domains which allow for its homodimerization or heterodimerization with Bcl-2. Although Bax alone does not induce cell death, elevated levels of Bax accelerate apoptosis following a death signal such as cytokine deprivation or Fas/Fas ligand interaction. The ratio of Bax homodimers to Bax/Bcl-2 heterodimers is an apoptotic checkpoint. When Bcl-2 is in excess, apoptosis is inhibited. However, if Bax levels increase in response to a death signal, the cell is pushed toward death. Bax function is also affected by Bax Inhibitor-1 (BI-1). Although it interacts directly with Bcl-2 and not Bax, BI-1 can suppress Bax-induced apoptosis. Alternative splicing of Bax mRNA produces Bax-alpha, the integral membrane form, and the two cytosolic forms beta and gamma. These isoforms are thought to allow for differential regulation of Bax activity and localization. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
