|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.|
