|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Calculated MW||23930 Da|
|Application & Usage||The antibody can be used for Western blot analysis (0.5-2 µg/ml) and immunohistochemistry (2-10 µg/ml). The optimal conditions should be determined individually. Other applications have not been tested.|
|Other Names||BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19 kDa protein-interacting protein 3-like; NIP3-like protein X|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-Bnip3L polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 1% BSA, 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Bnip3L/Nix Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BNIP3A, BNIP3H, NIX|
|Function||Induces apoptosis. Interacts with viral and cellular anti-apoptosis proteins. Can overcome the suppressors BCL-2 and BCL-XL, although high levels of BCL-XL expression will inhibit apoptosis. Inhibits apoptosis induced by BNIP3. Involved in mitochondrial quality control via its interaction with SPATA18/MIEAP: in response to mitochondrial damage, participates in mitochondrial protein catabolic process (also named MALM) leading to the degradation of damaged proteins inside mitochondria. The physical interaction of SPATA18/MIEAP, BNIP3 and BNIP3L/NIX at the mitochondrial outer membrane regulates the opening of a pore in the mitochondrial double membrane in order to mediate the translocation of lysosomal proteins from the cytoplasm to the mitochondrial matrix. May function as a tumor suppressor.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus envelope. Endoplasmic reticulum. Mitochondrion outer membrane. Membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Note=Colocalizes with SPATA18 at the mitochondrion outer membrane|

Members of Bcl-2 family are critical regulators of apoptosis by either inhibiting or promoting cell death. Bcl-2 homology 3 (BH3) domain is a potent death domain. BH3 domain containing pro-apoptotic proteins, including Bad, Bax, Bid, Bik, Hrk, Nip3, and Bim, form a growing subclass of the Bcl-2 family. A novel BH3 domain containing protein was recently identified and designated Bnip3L, Bnip3α, and Nix (for Nip3-like protein X). Bnip3L/Bnip3α/Nix is a homolog of the E1B 19K/Bcl-2 binding and pro-apoptotic protein Bnip3. Overexpression of Bnip3L induces apoptosis. Bnip3L interacts with and overcomes supression by Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL. Bnip3L is localized in mitochondria. The message RNA of Bnip3L and Bnip3 form a new subfamily of the proapoptotic mitochondrial proteins.
