|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, FC, E|
|Other Accession||Q9Z2F7, Q3T013, NP_004322.1|
|Calculated MW||23930 Da|
|Antigen Region||52-81 aa|
|Other Names||BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19 kDa protein-interacting protein 3-like, Adenovirus E1B19K-binding protein B5, BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19 kDa protein-interacting protein 3A, NIP3-like protein X, NIP3L, BNIP3L, BNIP3A, BNIP3H, NIX|
|Target/Specificity||This NIX antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 52-81 amino acids from the Central region of human NIX.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||NIX Antibody (Center) 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 to 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|

This gene is a member of the BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19 kd-interacting protein (BNIP) family. It interacts with the E1B 19 kDa protein which is responsible for the protection of virally-induced cell death, as well as E1B 19 kDa-like sequences of BCL2, also an apoptotic protector. The protein encoded by this gene is a functional homolog of BNIP3, a proapoptotic protein. This protein may function simultaneously with BNIP3 and may play a role in tumor suppression.
