Tag :

Expression System:

Sequence :

Specificity :Recognizes the BID protein

Cited Applications :WB, ELISA

Cross Reactivity :Human and Mouse

Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG

Immunogen :BID antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to 14 amino acids near the carboxy terminus of human BID

Purification :Affinity chromatography

Stability :Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.

Sample Data :Western blot analysis of BID in mouse lung cell lysates with BID antibody at (A) 0.5, (B) 1, and (C) 2 ug/ml.

Scientific Background :BID is a BH3 interacting death domain that heterodimerizes with either agonist BAX or antagonist BCL2 (1). BID is a member of the BCL-2 family of cell death regulators and is a mediator of mitochondrial damage induced by caspase-8 (CASP8). BID initiates apoptosis by binding to regulatory sites on prosurvival BCL2 proteins to directly neutralize their function. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants of BID have been found, but the full-length nature of some variants has not been defined. BID together with Cathepsins play an important role in the actions of Camptothecin on breast cancer cells (2).
