|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-human BAP31 recognizes an epitope within the internal region of BAP31 (B cell receptor-associated protein 31), a ~28 kDa conserved type III integral membrane protein of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), containing two caspase cleavage sites within its cytosolic domain.BAP31 appears to be a multi-functional ER-associated transport protein which was originally identified through its association with membrane IgD in B lymphocytes. Several proteins have since been shown to associate with BAP31, including the Beta2 integrin receptor CD11b/CD18, and nonmuscle gamma-actin and myosin B heavy chain. BAP31 has become a focus area for apoptosis studies due to its association with Bcl-2 and cleavage by initiator caspases including caspase 1 and 8. Cleavage of BAP31 generates a membrane-integrated p20 fragment which is itself a potent inducer of apoptosis when expressed ectopically.|
