- CITATIONS: 1
|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||21995 Da|
|Antigen Region||68-103 aa|
|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||This Bid antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 68-103 amino acids from human Bid.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||Bid Antibody (BH3 Domain Specific) 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 is a death agonist that heterodimerizes with either agonist BAX or antagonist BCL2. Bid is a member of the BCL-2 family of cell death regulators. It is a mediator of mitochondrial damage induced by caspase-8 (CASP8); CASP8 cleaves this encoded protein, and the COOH-terminal part translocates to mitochondria where it triggers cytochrome c release.
