|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Calculated MW||21995 Da|
|Other Names||BH3-interacting domain death agonist, p22 BID, BID, BH3-interacting domain death agonist p15, p15 BID, BH3-interacting domain death agonist p13, p13 BID, BH3-interacting domain death agonist p11, p11 BID, BID|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues before the BH3 domain of human Bid was used as the immunogen. This antibody does not cross-react with other Bcl-2 family members.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Bid Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||The major proteolytic product p15 BID allows the release of cytochrome c (By similarity). Isoform 1, isoform 2 and isoform 4 induce ICE-like proteases and apoptosis. Isoform 3 does not induce apoptosis. Counters the protective effect of Bcl-2.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Mitochondrion membrane. Note=When uncleaved, it is predominantly cytoplasmic. BH3-interacting domain death agonist p13: Mitochondrion membrane. Note=Associated with the mitochondrial membrane. Isoform 3: Cytoplasm.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 2 and isoform 3 are expressed in spleen, bone marrow, cerebral and cerebellar cortex. Isoform 2 is expressed in spleen, pancreas and placenta (at protein level) Isoform 3 is expressed in lung, pancreas and spleen (at protein level). Isoform 4 is expressed in lung and pancreas (at protein level).|

Bid, BH3 interacting domain death agonist, is a pro-apoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins that regulate apotosis. Bid is localized to the cytosol in an inactive precursor form. Upon caspase-8 binding in the Fas signaling pathway, Bid is cleaved and the active Bid fragment translocates to mitochondria and induces cytochrome c release and the resulting apoptotic cascade (1-3). Bid contains a BH3 domain which allows it to dimerize with and counter the death repressor effects of Bcl-2. BID has also been shown to heterodimerize with Bcl-x and the death agonist Bax (4).
