Beclin 1 Antibody (Ascites)

Mouse Monoclonal Antibody (Mab)

  • IF - Beclin 1 Antibody (Ascites) AM1818a
    Fluorescent image of U251 cells stained with AM1818a Beclin1 antibody.U251 cells were treated with Chloroquine (50 μM,16h), then fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.2%, 30 min). Cells were then incubated with AM1818a Beclin1 primary antibody (1:100, 2 h at room temperature). For secondary antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated donkey anti-mouse antibody (green) was used (1:1000, 1h). Nuclei were counterstained with Hoechst 33342 (blue) (10 μg/ml, 5 min). Beclin1 immunoreactivity is localized to autophagic vacuoles in the cytoplasm of U251 cells.
  • WB - Beclin 1 Antibody (Ascites) AM1818a
    Western blot analysis of anti-BECN1 Mab (Cat. #AM1818a) in HepG2, 293, Jurkat and Hela cell line lysates (35μg/lane). BECN1 (arrow) was detected using the Mab ascites (1:2000 dilution).
  • WB - Beclin 1 Antibody (Ascites) AM1818a
    Western blot analysis of anti-BECN1 Mab (Cat. #AM1818a) in recombinant BECN1 protein. BECN1(arrow) was detected using the ascites Mab (1:2000 dilution).
  • IHC-P - Beclin 1 Antibody (Ascites) AM1818a
    Breast CA section stained with Autophagy Beclin 1 Antibody (Cat. # AM1818a) at a 1:50 dilution. Data courtesy of Dr. Anita Thyagarajan, Cancer Research Laboratory, Methodist Research Institute, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Protein Information
Name BECN1
Synonyms GT197
Function Plays a central role in autophagy (PubMed:23184933). Required for the abcission step in cytokinesis (PubMed:20208530). Protects against infection by a neurovirulent strain of Sindbis virus (PubMed:9765397). May play a role in antiviral host defense.
