|Application ||WB, IHC, IP|
|Calculated MW||26266 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blot (1-4 µg/ml), Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry, and Flow cytometry. However the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Recognize the 26 kDa human Bcl-2|
|Other Names||BCL2, BCL 2|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) protein A purified from (low FBS containing) tissue culture supernatant. Purity was >95%. The antibody was formulated in PBS containing 1 mg/ml BSA and 1.5 mM sodium azide and 50% glycerol|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Bcl-2 Antibody (Clone Bcl-2/100) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Suppresses apoptosis in a variety of cell systems including factor-dependent lymphohematopoietic and neural cells. Regulates cell death by controlling the mitochondrial membrane permeability. Appears to function in a feedback loop system with caspases. Inhibits caspase activity either by preventing the release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria and/or by binding to the apoptosis-activating factor (APAF-1). May attenuate inflammation by impairing NLRP1-inflammasome activation, hence CASP1 activation and IL1B release (PubMed:17418785).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Nucleus membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in a variety of tissues.|

Bcl-2 (B-cell leukemia/lymphoma 2) gene was discovered by walking the chromosomal breakpoints t(14;18). This gene consists of two exons and several transcripts that encode two different protein products, Bcl-2α and Bcl-2β. Both proteins are approximately 26-30 kDa and differ at their C-terminal region. Bcl-2 suppresses apoptosis (programmed cell death) and this property appears to be modulated by homodimerization or association with Bax and Bad, two cell death promoters
